Sir Nathan (Calontir) used to provide period food for his royalty and
others by cooking stuff in advance, putting it in seal-a-meal bags,
bringing it in coolers, and dumping the bags into boiling water-not
as authentic a procedure as cooking on site, but a lot less work if
one person is doing it for many.
According to him, quality varies a lot in coolers. So part of your
solution may be to buy a higher quality cooler. What that would be I
have no idea--we don't use a cooler at Pennsic.
