Having lots of family/friends requirements to test me - diabetic (avoid sugars), Muslims (no pork products to be anywhere near and special meats), Hindu (no beef) I was thrown a new one for Xmas!
Having found out about a milk intolerance in our new grandson my daughter in law and the baby have to be dairy free and no cross contamination!
This tested my usual Xmas reliance on a nice cheese board, trifle and lots of cream! But we managed a very nice Xmas menu without making one person feel too deprived. This led to some thinking about making sure more of our normal menus. We found a nice red cabbage recipe on the diary free web site so this replaced the one I had done recently in the slow cooker which needed 6oz butter! Went wonderfully with the gammon and turkey.
Had to do some substitutions with balsamic vinegar and honey instead of some of the exotic ingredients - and we did it quickly in a saucepan and added a water to keep it from catching and caramelizing too much!
Unfortunately they have gone home and now I have to be inventive with the unused cheeses, yogurts, and cream by myself.
