Food Choreography

I'm watching Wolfgang Puck on the food channel and it's about the Oscar's party he is catering. It's amazing to see how choreographed it all is. Hundred's of cooks and waiters get the food out in exactly the right time. They have traffic directors which really makes sense but I never thought about it. This is a huge party, too. Just getting the food out of the oven or fridge at exactly the right time and then getting it into the dining room while still hot (or cold if that is the case) without leaving half the people staring at the remains of their appetizers while the other half are started on dessert. I love seeing how other people get their job done. Sometimes the jobs that are considered the most mundane are often the most fascinating to watch.
