Jak Siv's Birthday Feast!
« on: Feb 27, 2015, 12:27:50 PM »

(Scheduling conflict came up short notice, so sorry for the inconvenience!)

(The Celebration begins Friday March 6th, at 3:00 p.m. (PST, 6:00 EST, 11:00p.m. GMT), and continues on until the last person goes home.  Or passes out.)

To celebrate the birthing day of Jak Siv, the FUNDERDOME has been transformed for the evening into the Great Hall of a castle. 


The illusion of stone walls and flooring, high vaulted ceilings with thick rough hewn beams from which hang the pennants of Noble houses.  Heavy tapestries in appropriately masculine themes line the walls, and golden straw mixed with aromatic herbs cover the floors.  The evening's musical entertainment comes in the form of a band of minstrels who'll gladly play anything from from folk songs with origins in a time when serfs were common, to modern day rock. 



Party goers can either sit at one of the many heavy trestle tables set up around the room, or on the piles of cushions situated in groupings around low slung tables here and there. 

For drinks, the bar's open, and the Gem Golems are always happy to whip up whatever your heart desires.

And the food. Dear gods the food. 
 It's pretty much like a green pepper. Only...it's yellow!    Popular in the summer, a sweet, light, watery fruit with black seeds.    A thick, shimmering silver bracelet with tiny acorns. The acorns hold tiny clappers, making each movement of the wrist sound as if it was tinkling water.    RhyDin's finest home made brew. Random and questionable contents which all lead to the same thing: getting stupefied drunk. Warning label reads: May cause fire breathing, murderous rampages, embarassing confessions, illusions of grandeur, overly affectionate thoughts and gut rot. Drink at your own risk.    It's pretty much like a green pepper...only red. Some say red peppers are sweeter and have a different taste than green or yellow.    A green apple, sweet and tart. Perfect for baking or snacking on.    An odd, spiky plant with bitter outer skin and useless green top--but magnificently sweet and flavorful inside that makes a great snack and juice; possibly a weapon.   A tasty and fun-gi. Mushrooms can be added to any food, cooked or raw. This one does not come with hallucinations or poisons.    A trout grilled on a stick over a fire until it is crispy and golden. Lightly sprinkled with sea salt and cracked pepper.    Sweet, crunchy vegetable good for sides, salads and more.    A versatile vegetable for cakes, stews, meals and rabbits.    Oblong, yellow food that should be peeled before eating sweet insides. Also great for comedy.    Acorns are bitter--but can sustain any traveler desperate for food. Or grow your very own tree!    It's a strawberry. A single strawberry. It's rather tasty.    One fabulously soft, ripe pear. Don't leave it in a backpack or it'll turn into mush!   Delicious grapes, small, round objects of sweetness. A great snack no matter the circumstances. Although, once you eat these, you'll have to get more.   
You done bumped your head.

A banquet set up buffet style on heavy wood trestle tables that seem to groan under the weight.
 


Meats
 
Venison in Collops
Thinly sliced steaks of venison sandwiched with parsley, thyme, rosemary, spinage and other sweet herbs, and beef suet, salt, cloves, and nutmeg. 
 
Salted bacon fat has been larded through the collops to add a salty smokiness as the layers cook. The collops are then sandwiched between the forcemeat and bound into a bundle. 
 
The forcemeat and lardons give up their flavors as the package slowly roasts over a plum and persimmon wood fire, ensuring that the meat is not only perfectly seasoned, but still moist and succulent. 
 
Spit Roasted Rabbit With Honey And Lemon Basting Sauce 
 
Whole rabbit threaded on metal skewers, roasted over a wood fire. The basting sauce of honey, lemon juice and butter help the rabbit retain its moisture and add a slightly sweet flavor under the layer of char.
 
Overall a slightly smoky and sweet layer over the tender, juicy rabbit. 
 
Whole Roasted Sturgeon
 
Stuffed with lemon, parsley, fresh young alfalfa, and clover and sprinkled with sea salt and cracked black pepper.   
 
Served with the option of clarified butter.   
 
Whole Roasted Roe Deer
 
Basted in red wine and ground ginger for added richness and flavor.
 
Presented quartered.
 
Salt Ham Roasted Peacock
 
Whole peacock wrapped in salted ham slices, a mixture of almond milk and elderflower clusters has been rubbed into the meat under the skin. The body cavity has been stuffed with sage, sweet onions, parsley, grapes and oranges.   
 
Served with the head on, smaller game birds prepared in the same method, also head on, have been clustered at the cock's base.
 
Ale Braised Boar
 
Young, wild boar slow braised in a bath of One Sock Brewery's Billy Blind Braggot, a medium bodied mead/ale blend with orange blossom honey, orange peel, caramel, & spices with a slightly bitter citrus finish.
 
Salads
 
Several green salads are available in large wooden bowls with assorted add ins available; cheese, meats, nuts, berries, croutons.
 
 Johnny Jump up Salad with spring greens 
 
http://foyupdate.blogspot.com/2010/05/johnny-jump-up-spring-salad-recipe.html
 
Spring greens, pea shoots, wild garlic mustard, violets and sassafras flowers 
 
http://vegananddemanding.com/2010/05/24/an-other-spring-salad/
 
Spinach Salad with Wild Strawberries And Rose Petals
some freshly picked spinach leaves, fresh sprigs of mint, parsley, a few wild strawberries, combined and tossed in oil and vinegar, topped off with beautiful rose petals.
 

Vegetables

Sauteed Asparagus 
 
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/sauteed-asparagus-recipe.html
 
Roasted New Potato Skewers 
 
Delicate new potatoes in red, gold, and purple, tossed with fruity olive oil and sprinkled with rosemary and salt, threaded on skewers and roasted over an open fire until just done through. Crispy potato skins with a smoky, woodsy flavor tangling around the mild fruit of the oil. The lemony-piney flavor of the rosemary working with the flavors of the potatoes. 
 
Courgette Fritters 
 
Simple grated courgette (zucchini) mixed with feta cheese, spring onions, parsley, and mint. Served at room temperature, these gently fried fritters are light and tasty. 
 
The simple, and simply elegant flavors allowed to speak for themselves. Mild courgette with the salty, tangy, sharp feta, the green flavor of parsley and the cooling mint, the easy, spring onion flavor adds a hint of spice.

Desserts
 
Grilled Fruit 
 
Apricot and strawberry halves have been lightly grilled to allow their natural sugars to rise to the surface and caramelize there. Threaded on sugar cane skewers to add a gentle, green sweetness. A honey and yogurt dipping sauce is offered to go along with. 
 
Seedless watermelon in traditional red and yellow, cut into wedges and grilled just long enough for light gold marks to appear. The added "pop" of still cold juice past the fire heated skin is a pleasant surprise. 
 

Gooseberry and raspberry skewers 
 
Untouched, the sweet fig-cherry-apricot flavor of ripe red gooseberries and the indulgently sweet raspberry have been threaded on green bamboo skewers capped with mint.
 
Elderflower fritters

Whether you're in the mood for simple ankle skimming skirts, corsets and low cut dresses, or fine brocades and heavy velvet knickers and a ruff.  Shining armor or boiled leather. 


Keep it simple, keep it kind of in with the theme and have a blast with it! 


(Also, feel the urge to post your character's outfit?  Feel free to do so here!)
