|Award & Office Badges|
Mistress Cynthia du Pre Argent started in college (1983) and has continued in the SCA since then. She has awards from both the East Kingdom and the West. Highest level award is the Laurel, for silly hats.
Nominally a French Basque, due to reading that women in that culture were *allowed to own property* in the middle ages. I haven't done very much study about the culture, however, other than reading about the whistle language and The Return of Martin Guerre.

Contributor to the SCA cookbook Traveling Dysshes: Food for Wars, Peace, and Potlucks. It's medieval recipes which have been tested and adapted for SCA use, now on its third edition.
"Traveling Dysshes is a collection of recipes and information to help someone who knows their way around a kitchen take their first steps in the wide culinary world that is medieval cookery. Filled with recipes translated and tested from period sources, it makes preparing a medieval meal easy. Or, if you want to know what to take to a reenactors’ potluck, you can find easy to create dishes right here. The authors have a friendly, down-to-earth tone that assumes you have basic kitchen knowledge, but not necessarily knowledge about historic cooking."
