I have been having quite a few dinner parties lately and that has got me to thinking about putting some dinner menus together for those of you who have to watch what you eat. When you invite people to your own home for a meal, it may seem a little odd to cook from the restricted range of foods on your own eating regime. But why not? You don’t want to sabotage yourself and who would even know any different, as long as you are a little smart with your choices. Many of your friends will already know about your food intolerances but I don’t think it is necessary to make the dinner party in any way about that. Cook delicious food and no one will be any the wiser. You can even serve bread – I would recommend this gluten-free low FODMAP one which was a great success. How you present the food is what can take it from ordinary everyday food into the realm of something worthy of a dinner party. I have put together a menu which I am sure would be a big hit with your guests whether they and/or you have food intolerances or not. One bonus would be that those who have issues but choose not to talk about them (like me in the past) will not suffer and will be eternally grateful to you for a fabulous meal without consequences.
