Gluten free, vegetarian (or vegan!), kosher, allergies... In today's planning world, more and more attendees have special meal requests and allergies. To accommodate this, chefs are becoming more flexible with customization and a stronger relationship between the planner and the chef is necessary.

This round-table will discuss how you can partner with your venue's catering team to create a menu that is pleasing (and safe) for everyone, as well as how to manage those who may need special attention. Speakers include a chef and CSM.
