There are a series of questions here, some of which are about this feast and some about things that will affect future feasts. Please answer and add any other comments in the comments form and let me know there whether you would like them published or not. You can also copy/paste the questions and e-mail your answers to There are two sets of questions. You don’t have to do both, just pick which format works better for you….comments or numbers. *Any* input is appreciated!

I also want to say that the way everyone turned to and helped out with dishes and serving was marvelous and much appreciated!

What did you think of each dish named? On a scale of 1-10. Low is bad. High is good. If you don’t remember the dish or didn’t try it, just put an N.

In general, did you get enough to eat at the feast?

Was the interval between dishes/courses too long? too short? Or about right?

What was your favorite dish? Which did you like least?

I’m pretty sure the pork was enjoyed because it all vanished…. but how about the onion sauce that went with it?

What did you think of the fish and sauce?

How about the pies/tarts? (There were 3: mushroom, veg/cheese and egg/cheese)
