[Sca-cooks] Minor rant - allergies and following

Our small barony has a high proportion of gluten intolerants, including 
one of our head cooks. She works hard to offer alternatives in most dishes.

The most annoying problem I've seen is the cook who assured the inquirer 
that "everything's okay," after specific info was requested about the 
food, only to arrive at the event and look at the list of ingredients 
and discover almost everything was NOT okay. Especially annoying when 
feast had already been paid for.

Philosophically, I think trying to accommodate as much as we can without 
breaking the bank or driving ourselves crazy is good. But ultimately, if 
someone has lethal allergies, they should take responsibility for their 
owns lives, and if not absolutely sure, make other eating arrangements.

Feasting is just one of the activities one can enjoy in the Society . . .
