For previous discussions on cooking rice in large quantities, either  
in the oven or other ways, see this file in the FEASTS section of the  
cookng-grains-msg (34K)  4/24/08    Cooking grains in quantity.

While you are there you might want to glance at some of the other  
files. Many of these gives suggestions for planning and cooking  
feasts from some of the best cooks in the Known World, often learned  
the hard way. A few are:

of splitting it)

Constanza, I've never cooked a regular feast, nor am I likely to.  
However, I did serve a successful lunch to the Crowns and their  
entourage. So, you might consider doing something like that. Or for  
now, concentrate on cooking period dishes for pot lucks and such.
