I was wondering about that...  There must be a segment of your 
populace that just doesn't do feasts???

Here in AnTir, publishing the menu in advance is pretty standard. 
We're generally really high-radar about food allergies and 
sensitivities, as well as vegan/vegetarian, here in Ecotopia.

Somehow I'm not surprised though, Antipodeans are tough, <G>, I 
guess.  My best friend for the last 30 yrs is a Kiwi who always said 
there was absolutely no cultural allowance made for delicacy of 
constitution AT ALL, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE -- any sign of weakness 
was taken for malingering!  Of course, she grew up in New Zealand 50 
years ago...
