A lactose-free festive menu

December 3, 2011 ,

The number of people with dietary restrictions in our circle of family and friends is increasing by the day. That’s why for the next three Saturdays before Christmas (including today), I’d like to recommend some specially designed gourmet menus for all the guests to enjoy at the party… without the hosts having to break into a sweat about how to plan the menu.

We begin this week with a ‘5-course lactose-free menu’ for a festive meal. Normally, people who are intolerant to this milk sugar are still able to tolerate some dairy products. For example, cheeses that are low in lactose (such as cheddar, blue, Parmesan) are often eaten without any problem if taken in small amounts during the meal.

Yogurts with active bacterial cultures, which help digest lactose, are also usually well tolerated, but the menu I am proposing does not contain any dairy product.

For additional festive recipes and menus that meet dietary restrictions, go to our Christmas Page.
