Serve It Forth!
A Periodical Forum for Historical Cooks
What is Serve It Forth!
Serve It Forth! is a hardcopy newsletter about pre-17th century cooking, culinary sources, culinary history, ingredients, food, and foodways. It contains book reviews, recipes (both original and redacted), feast plans, tips on kitchen management and the preparation of feasts, anecdotes, and articles and research about all of the above.
This newsletter is of special interest to cooks within the Society for Creative Anachronism, but is also of interest to anyone doing research, recreation, or redaction on Renaissance and Medieval feasts and recipes. Serve It Forth! is not an official publication of the SCA and is not associated with any particular group or kingdom.
This web site tells you how to receive copies of the newsletter, how (and what kinds) of things you might like to submit for publication, and gives you some information on what has been published recently. With what we hope are a few tantalizing exceptions (shown at left), the web site does not include the articles published in the newsletter - if you want those, you need to order the newsletter.
For any further information, or to give feedback on the newsletter or this web page, contact Mistress Elaina online using her title and name as one 14 letter word with no spaces and then the letter a with a circle around it and the domain name of that famous bridge in venice called the Rialto followed by a period and the first three letters of the word "organization". I apologize for the cryptic instructions, but am making a valiant attempt to foil browser bots that create spam.

Feel free to enquire about discounts on volume purchases. Feel VERY free to make me an offer on a volume purchase. I'd love to get some of these newsletters out of the house. Discount? I can definitely make you a discount! Why not buy five or ten copies and pass them out at your local cooks guild or offer them as prizes in an A&S event?
