If there's any Georgians around, there's a new LARP in the Atlanta area called The Coral Gate (.com!). This one's brand new, and the city it takes place in was actually considered with things such as imports and exports, natural terrain, and the wealth level of the villagers. The character I've thought up is a baker.
My problem I'm hoping you guys could help me out with is in coming up with recipes. I'm not going to be too all-around strict on time and place with stuff--I'm going to offer candy and stuff from time to time--but I really want to have featured items that are in-character and in-setting.
It's probably going to be important that these things be relatively portable, to be grabbed and walked with. I'm looking into small pocket pies and things like that. The difficult part is going to be that the imports of the Coral Gate include rice and taro and sugarcane. How in the world do I combine those into something small and tasty--and how do I make that affordable out-of-play? = P
