When I cooked my feast, I was told that the entire head table was comped. There wasn't special head table food, the same as everyone else was served, but none of them paid. No Royalty, it was our Baron and his guests.  How does this fit into this policy?   I understand that it is customary to comp royalty who have traveled to be there, but why would the whole head table comped?
