So I've been typing up our menu just to get everything in the correct format/font, but it got me thinking. We have a tasting in January, so we may change some things then. I want people's opinions, ie, if we have all the bases covered and enough variety for each dietary issue. This is not the format the menus are going to be in FYI!
Here are the food restrictions: No gluten free, about 20-30 vegetarians (do eat cheese, dairy, eggs), none of my family is strictly kosher (they eat shellfish) but I'm trying to avoid pork, FI's family doesn't eat beef.
Mashed potato bar with different cheeses. caramelized onions, roasted garlic, and grilled vegetables to add
Sushi station- we get 5 choices and we're going to make 2 vegetarian, 1 cooked, and 2 raw
5 passed apps, but we haven't chosen yet. We're thinking 2 or 3 of them will be vegetarian. How many do you think should be vegetarian?
