April 3 (Friday): Cooking with Master Galefridus, 6-7pm. Join Master Galefridus Peregrinus as he prepares a dinner of Sour Orange Chicken, a recipe from Scents and Flavors: A Syrian Cookbook, which is Charles Perry’s translation of Kitāb al-Wusla il’al-Habib, a cookbook from 13th century Syria. The original recipe reads as follows:
“Take sour orange or the sour part of citron, extract the pulp, and mix into syrup. Thicken to the consistency of beverage syrup. Fry the chicken and add. This is an unusual dish. When serving, plate the chicken and garnish with citron or orange flesh all over, on the breast and sides and underneath.” Meeting Link https://meet.google.com/ith-ukek-csf

April 8 (Wednesday) Teaching European Dance. 8-9pm. Instructor: Master Philip White. This class is particularly useful for beginning dance teachers but can also help polish anyone’s skills. Some of these steps may seem obvious or come to you naturally. I have tried to break down the process as simply as possible. They are different actions that have been more successful when I teach as I have worked to become a better teacher myself. Meeting Link: https://meet.google.com/dbq-emgw-nff

Entrants will each have 5 minutes to present on a topic related to Martial A&S. The original challenge is below, but we understand that things may need to be adjusted for online presentation. Remember, this is not a competition, just an opportunity to share your art and learn from others. There will be time during the meeting for questions and discussion.
Original Challenge Prompt: Develop a project that explores a recreation of a historical martial technique and/or the culture and history of a particular culture’s use of arms, weapons and war. Project should be least one mode of presentation with historical references and can include a variety of modes as suits the presenter. Examples of projects could be a research paper with bibliography and/or annotations, physical demonstration against the same or different martial techniques, presentation in any form (power point, posters, handouts, plates, copies of paintings, art work, manuals, treatises) of historical background, art of war, civilian arms, and weaponry. All levels are welcome and encouraged.
