[Sca-cooks] Fish at feasts

I don't recall who originated it, but one of the pearls of wisdom I have
heard in regards to food served at feast is "Only one weird looking dish and
only one weird tasting dish, and don't make it the same dish." I never
expect everyone to eat every dish I serve for a feast, but there should be
enough variety in the dishes that everyone goes home satisfied.

My dh doesn't eat fish, so we simply avoid those feasts that feature it. 
I'm sure that there are those (like me) who would see out a feast 
featuring uncommon foods.

As long as you advertise well, I wouldn't expect any problems.
