To which Cariadoc replied:
<<< I think there are two possible problems that your description  
entirely deal with.

1. Some people want to be able to cook for a bunch of people at
Pennsic without spending too large a fraction of their time doing it.

2. Some people prefer to limit themselves to period technology so far
as practical. >>>

Unfortunately, these two concerns may be mutually exclusive if stated  
as absolutes.  As absolutes, I generally like to do the latter, but  
the former often causes me to have to do otherwise.

Of course neither of these were written as absolutes. So often the  
question is where do we draw the line between the two.

So the more I can solve number 1, the more of number 2 I can do.  
Hiring more household staff is not always an option these days, so I'm  
interested in hearing more solutions to the first leading to the  
second or solutions that solve both, if they exist.
