You are being way nicer than I would have been. I would feed the vegetarian’s the vegan meal and tell them to suck it up. I can understand a life threatening allergy to something, or religious reasons, but honestly, I just find all these crazy food requirements people have to be really obnoxious. There was a time when you went to an event and you didn’t complalin. I feel like what someone eat’s is their own problem, and if you want to be a veg or vegan that’s fine – but it’s not anyone else’s responsibility to cater to such strict dietary requirements.

I myself am a picky eater. I’m pretty much a meat and potatos girl – really don’t like veggies, or strange sauces, etc. I would NEVER expect someone to cater to me because I’m picky. I’d fine something to eat, or make sure I had a snack before leaving home if I was worried that I wouldn’t have anything I liked there.

Could you have a hearty vegan main course to serve both the vegetarians and vegans, but make sure there’s a cheese course and a non-vegan appetizer (like a creamy soup or roasted vegetable salad with cheese) that would make the vegetarians happy in the rest of the meal? I know you want to accomodate everyone, but I’m not sure the vegetarians have to have dairy incorporated into every course of the four course meal to have a satisfying dinner. Maybe you can have a couple of courses that would work for vegans and vegetarians and a couple of courses that have dairy incorporated into one of the options for the vegetarians.
