In praise of picky eaters

Peg | Mar 7, 2011 07:29 AM

People on 'special' diets get a lot of flak here - but I'd like to say a big 'thankyou' to anyone who eats a restricted diet.
Without them I'd not be cooking a dinner for 6 without meat, fish, seafood, bananas, eggs, wheat, barley, oranges, onions, cow-dairy, oats, buckwheat, gluten, leeks or tripe. OK, tripe is a meat, but one person said it was the only thing they wouldn't eat. And one person said they didn't eat 'creatures from the sea' - which I think I've got covered.
Without all the restrictions I'd not have done so much research and planning and would be cooking a much more mundane menu. I would not have discovered peanut-butter and maple syrup iced tofu (so yummy), I would not have made goats milk cajeta - nor would I have discovered a recipe for the most delicious coconut chutney.
So you have restrictions? Bring it on!
