About: The Gobbled Frette is an Innilgard award for a specific cooking competition. The winner of a Gobbled Frette Cooking Competition is awarded a wooden frette token and is required to run another Gobbled Frette cooking competition within a year. The next winner is presented with the wooden token and the previous winner is presented with a pewter token.
The Gobbled Frette cooking competition is run separately to A&S competitions (and does not count towards the A&S Championship as it is a separate award) but is run under the same guidelines. Entries should be based on sources and/or resources from the SCA period which is generally considered to be pre 1600 CE.
Entrants should supply competition paperwork with their entries. Three forms are required and can be found here: http://lochac.sca.org/innilgard/forms-as.html.
Documentation to go with your entry is always a good idea. Some advice on writing A&S documentation can be found here: http://artsandsciences.lochac.sca.org/documentation
Some links and resources on cooking in the SCA period can be found here: http://cooks.lochac.sca.org/web-resources-and-online-recipe-books/
