The venue has confirmed that each kitchen will be supplied with a basic set of:
Knife, fork, spoon, teaspoon
Big & little knife
We are really very pleased with this because most BiCon venues don't provide any of this and we were sure until recently that people would have to bring their own or live on takeaway and pot noodles, so we are quite happy to accept thanks, praise and chocolate…
If you are an observant person or a drinker you will have noticed some things the list doesn't contain, including corkscrews, a frying pan or a colander (I'm sure I'm not the only person who finds it hard to drain pasta with a saucepan lid). You are very welcome to bring any additional utensils you feel you might need, as long as you take them away again as otherwise we will be charged for clearing the flats up.
And of course we'll also be charged for any equipment that gets broken or goes missing, so we'll be asking people at BiCon to let us know if that happens.
In the mean time do let your friends know about this so they know not to bring the kitchen sink (sorry). And we'll see you at BiCon!
