Recipes were redacted from A Soup for the Qan. Although the recipes themselves are very close to the originals, the menu is atypical because meat (particularly mutton) is under represented and vegetables are over represented.

For dietary considerations,  contact the feast steward BEFORE Jan. 2, 2017. We will make accommodations, however due to the nature of this feast separate cooking will be needed, and a prepaid non-refundable feast reservation will be required.
