Interkingdom Anthropology note:

Wow. That's... odd. I mean, it sounds like people are buying a pig in a
poke, with no idea what kind of food they'll get at all, unless they
contact you about allergies? I know that was the norm early in my SCA
career (I think) but it's kinda wierd now. I know more picky eaters, too,
and some of them will come to a feast based on the cook's reputation, but
mostly they do look at the menu to see if there will be stuff they eat. I
guess not having a menu keeps the pickier eaters away, which could be a
benefit, though.
