Catering To All Dietary Needs

It is no surprise to us that the 2016 International Caterers Association (ICA) survey of member caterers showed 100% reporting that they accommodated one or more dietary needs. Accommodating dietary needs is inherent in our menu creation process and service execution. In planning with clients, we discuss guest needs and solutions and at event service our staff is trained to adjust to unexpected requests.
As each event is unique, we treat each menu the same and keep our guests preferences and dietary needs in mind as we prepare and serve.
The main 4 dietary needs that we see include:
- Vegetarian: Vegetarians abstain in the consumption of meat (red meat, poultry, seafood, and the flesh of any other animal), and may also include abstention from by-products of animal slaughter.
- Vegan: A vegan diet excludes all animal products, including eggs and dairy and honey.
- Dairy-free: Dairy-free diets exclude most dairy products. Alternative dairy products like almond milk or soy cheese may be consumed.
- Gluten-free: A Gluten-free diet strictly excludes gluten, a mixture of proteins found in wheat and related grains, including barley, rye, oat, and all their species and hybrids (such as spelt, kamut, and triticale).
Additionally we are able to cater around those 8 foods which are responsible for 90 percent of all food allergies including:
- Cows Milk
- Tree Nuts
