Oh my. I was already behind in reading this list, although I always  
try to at least scan each day's digests. But there were 14! digests  
yesterday, a daily record I think. So I missed the first part of this  
thread and don't know what the original question was. However,  
headcooks wondering what they might give out as personal thank-you  
gifts for those that helped them with the feast might consider this  
file of interest:
gifts-4-staff-msg (14K) 12/ 1/06    Gift suggestions for members of  
the event
                                        stewards or headcooks staff.

There is also this file. But after cooking and tasting period cooking  
all day, this idea might not go over as well as at other times.
food-gifts-msg    (32K)  5/ 3/07    Period food items that make good
