Nigella Lawson: Catering to Picky Eaters

It is always better to try and accommodate people's needs by incorporating foodstuffs into the main menu rather than creating special dishes for a select few. A gorgeous vegetarian recipe can be enjoyed by the whole company, but that doesn't mean to say that those on special diets need to be catered to slavishly. If only one or two people don't want to eat wheat, for example, you need only have one dish that is wheat-free and they can just skip those dishes that contain it. Otherwise, everything will just get out of control, and so long as you don't get offended if someone chooses not to eat dessert, for example, the party will go well with no feelings hurt.
