Fundraiser Period Feast

I’m happy to announce that two Companions of the Order of the Laurel have volunteered to create the menu and make the food for a period Italian fundraiser feast at Gulf Wars. The feast will be held at the Ca’ d’Oro Renaissance Salon and Italian Apothecary on Artisan’s Row. We will serve three (or more, it’s really up to them) courses made as they would have been in 16th century Italian city-states. To offer your donation via credit card simply go to my Etsy shop and select the dinner:
