We had one lady who was a conference service manager at my old job vegetarian, not allergy, strawberry allergy, lactose intolerant and gluten free. Hated my life whenever she'd dine with a client.
had one guest that was vegan, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, no oil, no spices, no garlic, no onion. and then complained it lacked flavor. true story.
@foody518 or pure MSG
The amateur celiac* and smoothiehead crowds is making everyone confused about vegans and vegetarians ..... the rest of us loves gluten, both prepared pure (modern Seitan and classic chinese ways) and in a good bread or yeast dumpling; we're considering getting one of these vacuum blenders to not make a smoothie but larger-than-life tomato sauces; the rest of the veg we rather saute than blend. And nuts? They are a food group of their own.
@Godslayer Did that lady come with a peanut and coconut allergy, or even worse with a soy allergy on top of that? Otherwise, sounds easy - there's a boatload of chinese, thai, south indian, japanese options....
Oh btw, the artist that drew that comic is vegan himself.
*no offense meant to those that actually are celiac or intolerant. It's a different group I'm being intentionally offensive to here.
I feel for all the chefs out there who have to deal with this nonsense every day. I only had to deal with on on the occassional holidays when I hosted a family member who was "allergic" to eggs, wheat and dairy but somehow managed to tolerate cake and coffee with cream.
