I provide a list of all ingredients used in the meal for each recipe. While
I usually prepare everything from scratch, if I use a commercial
preparation, I will list all of the ingredients on their ingredient list.
This takes care of most common dietary problems. I will also answer any
questions about the feast that I can.
I try to create dishes with varied ingredients and dishes that will appeal
to both carnivores and vegetarians, so that no one goes hungry.
If I am informed of dietary issues IN ADVANCE, I will try to prepare at
least some dishes to provide an adequate meal and I will tell people which
dishes they can not eat. I've arranged menus to account for allergies,
diabetes, gastric problems and religious requirements. I don't need to know
details, but I need to know what is required to determine whether I can help
you. Failing to tell me of your dietary needs makes it your problem.
