Feast Gear

Tableware for one diner. Almost all SCA feasts assume that the guests will bring everything they need to eat in comfort, including plates, bowls, goblets and utensils. Many people also bring decorative tablecloths, candles and other items to grace their table.

Feastocrat

This is a term sometimes used by an autocrat running a feast, or in the case of some events, the autocrat runs the event, and the feastocrat specifically runs the kitchen. Note that there is no historical basis for the use of this term, and indeed, it is probably a made-up word based on "autocrat" -- many purists frown on its use, and instead suggest such terms as "Head Cook", or "Kitchener" be used.
