Back to Triumphe Autocrat's Little Helper

So, someone tagged you to do Feast - or you volunteered. Yay! But, where to begin... This is a work in progress as my attention span holds. Lemme know if you run into this and want content added or removed - your additions are helpful and will jog me back into working on this! Email to <Elsa@HailMOG.org>.

  • --Elsa 11:36, 31 August 2012 (PDT) Minor updates.

  • --Elsa (talk) 08:11, 18 April 2013 (PDT) Hopefully drastic updates to be completed ahead of the Triumphe VIII bid date.


Feast Steward 101

Job Description:

  • To safely and tastily feed a crowd at an event.
  • To provide safe, comfortable, well-fed working conditions for your Kitchen crew.
  • To promote the eating of tasty foods at an event!

How to Make That Happen

  • Kitchen Jobs:
    • Go-To Person for recipe consultation and oversight
    • Go-To Person for timing (will probably be the same as for recipes)
    • Feast Server Wrangler (should NOT be someone with a "real" job in the kitchen during the day - but can be someone helping as needed)
    • Go-To Person for Plating (best if it's someone not doing any of the above jobs)
  • Resources: Things needed, including groceries and tools. Specialty tools to order. Don't forget about stuff in your house!
  • Kitchen space: Counters, Ovens, Fridge
  • Serving considerations: Number/size of tables you'll be serving (how many people to put at each will directly affect how many you serve, how you plate it).
  • Head Server. After this person is appointed, you'll need to communicate the following:
    • Total Number of People to be served
    • Number of Tables you want to serve
    • Will they work with a Feast Herald?

Points to Think About

This is a "catchall" list of things I want to address but haven't gotten to yet - so that's why some points are broadly generic and others are minutely specific.

  • What are you serving?
  • How are you making it?
  • What is your budget?
  • What do you need to make your plan happen?
  • What kind of time will that take?

Musicians. Are they playing? Are you supporting them? Where will they be set up?
