LUDI MEGALENSES II - Roman Cooking Contest (4-8 April)

Postby Octavius Aurelius Augustus » Tue Apr 04, 2017 12:41 pm

Today is the start of a week-long celebration, the Ludi Megalenses, in honour of Magna Mater. Traditionally feasting was a significant part of this festival! Sadly we cannot all feast together as a community in person. But we can feast together using our eyes and words! With this in mind, I formally announce the start of a cooking contest!

This cooking contest will run from April 4 - April 8th.

The prize is 60 denarii

Cassia Longina will be judging the contest. There will be equal points awarded in four categories:

I) Appearance II) Historical Reference III) Description of taste - it does not have to taste good, points awarded for the quality of the description! III) Ingredients / Recipe

You must cook a Roman-themed dish. It can be from a historical recipe or historically plausible Roman recipe.

You submit entries to Octavius Aurelius Augustus or Gaia Cassia Longina, or by replying to the announcement message in the Forum. Entries must contain the following information:

I) Name or Roman Name II) Name of dish III) Original photograph of dish IV) Notes on the historical inspiration for dish V) Description of the taste VI) Recipe
