I Can’t Eat That! Managing Dietary Needs of Guests

Do you often wonder whether the event attendees who ask for special meals are just picky eaters or on one of the latest fad diets? You’re not alone. There are millions of people who have chosen to follow a specific diet or just don’t like a specific food (I personally dislike cucumbers and melons), but there are millions of others who have food allergies, celiac disease, heart disease or another disease that requires them to eat a specific way to stay safe and healthy. At Catersource 2012 in Las Vegas, Tracy will be discussing the various dietary needs and how to manage them successfully when planning menus and serving guests.

    Hi Tracy,

    I am with the Anaphylaxis and Food Allergy Association of MN and am also a member of the Minneapolis-St.Paul chapter of ISES. I attended the luncheon last month when you were our speaker about managing dietary needs of guests. I wanted to thank you for a very informative and well researched presentation. I’m sorry we didn’t get the chance to talk a bit after the meeting. Could you direct me to some of the research you cited? I am very interested on what has and still needs to be researched re client perceptions, industry attitudes and response to special food needs, etc. Thanks so much! I am looking forward to reading your newsletters. My best to you, Anne McLellan
