As leaders in the industry, how do we address this request on both a large and a small scale without having to first become a food scientist? 

Do you or does someone you know have a food allergy, intolerance, sensitivity or preference and wonder how to properly communicate this to food professionals?

The continuing rise of special dietary requests can cause challenges for caterers in creating meals for clients and their guests that are safe AND delicious!

Join two Atlanta-based industry experts – Chef Ashley Mitchell, Executive Sous Chef at Affairs to Remember Caterers

and Tracy Stuckrath, CSEP, CMM, CHC, CFPM, founder and chief connecting officer of Thrive! Meetings & Events – as they decipher the most common special dietary requests and offer real-life solutions to properly accomplish those requests, in on-site and off-site catering scenarios.

You’ll learn more about:

  •   the distinctions between food allergies, anaphylaxis and intolerances, including peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, wheat, shellfish, fish and gluten; belief-based diets, including kosher and halal; various types of vegetarianism, including vegan diets; health/medical-based diets, including low-fat, low-sodium, low-sugar, low-carb
  •   the importance of staff training and available resources that might benefit your staff
  •     streamlining how you handle requests to map onto your company’s internal processes
  •     which reference resources can be trusted when you are in the process of educating yourself and your staff on various special diets


This is not a trend.
Don’t be the last to know about special dietary requests.
Learn how you can offer everyone a place at the table!

The chefs and catering staff at 103 West, part of Buckhead Life Restaurant Group,  are eager to welcome us to their fabulous venue. Learn more about their capabilities and willingness to work with the Greater Atlanta NACE community
