The Kingdom of Caid is proud to host The Society for Creative Anachronism's West Coast Culinary Symposium in 2014. This multi-Kingdom, 3-day event will be a chance for like-minded and enthusiastic people to get together and share their love and knowledge of pre-1600 period cooking and practices and share the tasty results. It is also a time to gather as friends, make new ones, share ideas, and teach our skills to others hoping to learn.

This action-packed event will be held March 7-9, 2014 at Camp Scherman near Idyllwild, CA. Participants will be comfortably lodged in heated cabins with access to several onsite kitchens and outdoor cooking areas.

A note from the meal planner! Greetings WCCS 2014 attendees. Friday night there will be a travelers potluck. There will be a supplement of soups that the Symposium is providing. Each person should bring a dish to serve at least 8. Please include an ingredients list for those with food allergies. It's also a good idea to bring serving utensils specifically for the dish, just in case.
