The Right Noble Upper Crust is the baronial cooking guild of Gyldenholt. This group shares ideas and experiences regarding cooking and related issues, as well as being a repository for cooking and related information to the local community.

The Upper Crust Cooking Guild was presented with a "Charter of a Right Noble Guild" on 08/26/2006 by Sven and Kolfinna King and Queen of Caid, for service to Caid. Also, the Upper Crust was presented with a Royal Recognition of Excellence in June, 2014 by Agrippa and Bridget King and Queen of Caid, for their excellence in period cooking.

Several of the "Crusties" have also received Laurels, Lux Caidis, and Harp Argent awards for period cooking.


The Right Noble Upper Crust Cooking Guild is a medieval and renaissance cooking group in the Kingdom of Caid interested in recreating period recipes and cooking methods and providing the experiences gained to the populace at large.


Currently The Upper Crust Cooking Guild meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at various guild members homes. Contacting the guildhead would provide up to date locations of guild meetings.

The meetings, workshops and classes are open to all SCA members.
