Personally I disagree with the argument of the article. To me choosing to follow the dietary laws of any religion is equivalent to choosing to be a vegetarian. I respect that choice and would do nothing to intentionally violate or disrespect that choice. But I also acknowledge that this choice means narrowing one's culinary world. This means that either getting a job in the culinary world or competing in food challenges will be limited to the culinary world that embraces those choices/parameters or finding a way to navigate a world not designed to respect those choices.
