The Perfectly Period Feast Movement has been described as "collaborative research project culminating in an immersive experience".
The West Kingdom Perfect Period Feast – Burgundy Guild (PPF-Burgundy Guild) is dedicated to exploring the time and culture of Burgundy in the fifteenth century with a goal of producing a Perfectly Period Feast on the theme in Fall of 2017. All interested parties shall be guild members. The guild members will spend the intervening years researching the time period, producing suitable items, conducting classes and workshops, and fundraising for the event.
Specifically we will be throwing a feast day centered in 1450 to 1477 in a pretentious, wealthy merchant household. The goal is to continue the high quality in food, table service and material goods that have come to characterize PPF's while expanding the spectacle presentations (entremets), period games/entertainments, and music/dance. In addition we will be adding a pas d'armes. We encourage an interactive experience for servers and guests and we seek to engage those new to PPFs as well as our core of experienced participants. All interested parties shall be guildmembers.
If there is anything we can do to aid you in "Doing Art" for this project, please do not hesitate to contact us.
