First bit of content. One thing that is close to my heart is making sure that people in the SCA with food allergies are well catered. It's a two-sided street tho.
It's important for the Kitchen staff to we well versed in how to manage Allergies for a feast. It's also important for attendees to book their allergies properly:
* Clearly stating their allergies
* Clearly stating serious lifestyle choices (Vegetarian, Veganism, Kosher, Halal,
* Not declaring food dislikes or food avoidances (avoiding gluten because a
Mens/Womens health magazine told you too)

I'd love some feed back on this - it's a living article so expect it to grow and expand over time.
