Does anyone have any experience to share on dealing with various food allergies and requirements? Of 20-25 households now either full or associate members (associates are in the process of joining) I would guess we have at least 8 with some kind of restrictions (vegetarian, macro-biotic, no wheat, no gluten, no spices(includes onions, green pepper as well), no dairy, no tomatoes, no fish, no eggs). Right now, with the 8 resident households, we get pretty creative, and usually have only 2 versions (w/ or w/o spice) of dishes, and avoid wheat and dairy, but sometimes we have 3. It seems to me that if we go to 'least common denominator' we would be down to macrobiotic with no fish and limited vegies and spices. And that making more options is going to require more cooking time/ and or people cooking more frequently. one suggestion has been to develop a set of menus .
