Re: Dinner party with multi-allergy guest - menu

A few weeks ago I posted an SOS on here for needing tips/ideas of what to serve on a dinner party when one of the guests has several unusual food allergies (please see the original post for the list of allergies). I got a lot of wonderful suggestions from you all, and the dinner was a success. Many of you have asked me to post the final menu, so here it is:

- Salt Crusted Fish stuffed with lemon and ginger (grouper & tilapia)
- Spicy Asian coleslaw : Napa cabbage, Asian pear, orange, Chinese grapefruit tossed with lemon juice, Chinese dark vinegar, salt, and zest from the Chinese grapefruit with sliced chili pepper(Thai)
- Crunchy & creamy red potatoes : boiled red potatoes smashed into a pancake, drizzled with bacon fat and salt, baked at a high temp until crispy on the bottom and edges
- Red wine & Pear Sorbet
- Orange cranberry macaroon (the coconut kind)

With the exception of the coleslaw (my own creation), all of the recipes came from a "professional" source (magazine/media), than I tweaked it to fit the allergy list. Everything I served is eatable to the guest in question.
This was a tiresome preparation, but such a great challenge to force me thinking outside of the box. I had a lot of fun, and can't wait to do this again at my next turn. (its a monthly dinner rotation among a group of friends.)
