Thanks for responding, Mariana - and some others as well, just to me. I'll look up the book you recommend. We do use Moosewood Cooks for a Crowd. We cook for between 25 and 40. Meals are often vegetarian, though vegetarians are in the minority here. If there is meat, there is a vegetarian option, and often a kid-friendly option too. In a recent discussion, people voiced dislike of an overdose of carbs - more at pot lucks, but at prepared meals too, because it is so quick/easy (and tasty) to do a pesto pasta for example. So another goal is to develop a repertoire of protein rich dishes for cooked meals. Parents also want that for their kids.

How many dietary restrictions are you willing to accommodate?

There is energy here for putting together a book of favorite meals for a crowd. I think some other communities may have done this already. Would you be willing to let me know what you've done and whether it is shareable? I'll pass anything and all responses on to others. Thanks!
