I can't speak on how anyone else does it even within my own kingdom...

But when I can come in under budget on a feast, I try to use a part 
of the left over money to feed the cooks lunch.

If not, I usually collaborate with one or more of the other cooks to 
provide something. When we did 12th Night in Dreiburgen this past 
January, I provided a ham and Maggie MacDonald made a big pot of 
vegetable and barley soup with some home baked bread.

We then required that everyone take a break and eat something. 
Whether they ate what we provided or got their own, the break was 
mandatory. There will be no fainting in any of my kitchens.
