Good point....
Several years ago, while deep in the night-before-the-event feast prep for a 
3 course Andalusian feast (and coordinated lunch), I came down with one of 
the worst cases of the flu I've ever had in my life.  My poor autocrat, 
luckily a skilled cook in her own right, had to take over all cooking for 
that day, with the help of many local volunteers.  I'm told it actually went 
quite well, between the willing hands, and me being seriously over-organized 
with my menus, lists of tasks, dishes, etc, etc. (all done in advance, for 
once).  It's not an optimal situation, but it can be done!
