Dinner Parties

Planning a dinner party menu is like trying to solve one of those annoying SAT problems. Maybe you can help. We have eight guests coming for dinner. One guest has high blood pressure and a cholesterol problem. A second guest only eats well-done meat and potatoes. A third guest is diabetic. The fourth is a vegan and his partner is on a strict gluten-free diet. Another guest only eats organic fruit and vegetables, free-range chicken and line-caught wild fish. The seventh guest is on phase 2 of the South Beach diet. The eighth guest is a picky eater who loves bread and pasta and is lactose intolerant. Can you suggest a three-course menu? For extra credit you can help me with the seating plan (see Seating Plans).

    A pot Luck Dinner is invaluable in this case let them all bring their favorite dish and then help with the cleanup!

    That’s easy. Salad, Roasted Veggies, Pasta with and without a meat sauce, fresh fruit for dessert!

    Same as going out to dinner with vegan or someone who is kosher. It’s absolutely impossible.
