Oh, No, it's a Vegetarian!

We received a request this weekend for several vegetarian meals and snacks. Simple enough, Yes? But there’s a problem for the caterer. If you have any understanding of vegetarians, you will know that there is not just one group called vegetarian; there are in fact at least 11 different types of vegetarians with specific restrictions as to what foods and condiments can be used in the production of their meals.

Below is a list of recipes as well as a pdf for you to download.
