Hi - this year instead of an elegant sit down dinner on Christmas I am planning a buffet lunch for 15 several days after Christmas and I am at a loss as to what to serve. I have never done a buffet before. In the mix of people are one who doesn't eat pork or shellfish, one with a red meat allergy, one vegan and one who doesn't eat meat but does eat fish. I don't expect any one dish to address all of the limitations but I would each to have something good things to eat. I would also like the general tone to be elegant. Every time I try to think about a menu my head explodes and it is getting very messy. Any inspiration/ideas out there?
Also any hints on how to make a buffet work well would also be appreciated.
