These days it seems that everyone knows someone who is dealing with nut allergies, gluten intolerance, diabetes and even religious preferences.  Dealing with everyone’s dietary restrictions can be a headache but when you work with a professional event planners it’s as easy as sugar-free-nut-free-gluten-free pie. Which is a lot easier than it sounds.

The last thing you want is for your guests to leave your event early because they’re hungry or having a bad reaction to the food.  You might not know what’s safe for everyone and the last thing you want to be concerned with is keeping everyone alive. But there are a few steps you can take to ensure that everyone is safe.

People with food restrictions often come to expect that they might not be able to eat everything the other guests are eating.  The good news is that Simply Elegant Catering has plenty of gluten free and allergy-safe menu options available.  If you know that someone on your guest list has trouble with certain foods, or if you’re planning an event with a guest list full of people with food restrictions, it becomes more important than ever to trust your menu to a company that cares about food safety.

In Canada, cooks are certified by the Red Seal program which insists that “they must be conscious of health information such as dietary requirements and allergies.”

Each of the menu options that Simply Elegant offers can be customized to suit the needs of guests with food restrictions and part of your consultation with event planners will consist of determining how to best serve your guests.  Simply Elegant can then label buffet food items to make special food items easy to spot.
