    Do you have any quests with food allergies or who are vegetarian?

    The menu is appealing to me but I am not a picky eater or limited by allergies.

    Your menu sounds like a dreammmm! The only course that I might struggle with is the seafood vs corn soup. I’m not big on fishy soup and I am a weirdo that doesn’t like corn so I would be out on that one. Do you have any options that maybe aren’t seafood?

    I would look forward to a choice from every course except one, and that’s due to an allergy.

    I think it is a superlative menu. I am not of the opinion that you have to cater to picky eaters when you have so many courses. If every course comes with rice and vegetables, they can eat those if there’s one item they don’t like.

    There is enough in there for a picky eater to satiate themselves with and it sounds delicious to me.

    xiexie :  sounds amazing…. Can I come?

    You have catered to those who are vegetarian, you’ve considered you guests with more western palates, you are considering any guests who are allergic to things when they notify you on RSVP cards. I think you are golden! The other thing is that you have loads of courses and if someone doesn’t find anything of interest in one course they have plenty of options before or after.

    xiexie :  My only concern would be food allergies. Barring that this sounds very nice and tasty! I’ve never had a 7 course meal before!

    There is definitely enough on that menu that I would be more than satisfied, but I wouldn’t be able to eat any of it due to allergies. Personally I don’t think picky eaters should be bent over backwards for, maybe that’s because the picky eaters in my life are so difficult they will only eat the most basic of basic (think: chips, burgers, hot dogs without toppings, etc). But it might pay to start asking around for allergy info, because a coeliac would put a huge spanner in the works.

    My only real concern with your menu is that there is a lot of meat/seafood/deep frying going on. I love that, but 7 courses (even though they are small) would have me feeling ill and tbh I’d probably leave right after dinner to go into a food coma. If that is of any concern to you (you know your guests, I don’t) maybe offer a ‘fresh’ salad option as one of your non-traditional options? Even if it has a fresh, zingy, Chinese dressing to keep with the rest of the menu. Just a thought, anyway. Sounds delicious but heavy.
