I became Seneschal of my barony in 2013, and ever since donning that particular hat, I’d wanted to resurrect the Twelfth Night revels that had gone the way of the dodo long before I joined. So when a member of our populace decided to step up and autocrat it for me, Lady Odette d’Arques and myself jumped on the chance to make this small feast, which was accompanied by a potluck-style day board and a dessert competition throughout the day. Odette was responsible for most of the feast, but I again tapped the resource of my father and stepmother’s rural farm for the venison pie.
