Here's a good one for you all...Just got a memo on a BEO. We have a client who wants to book an event however she is allergic to Gluten, Corn, Dextrose and Chicken. She wants to do action stations. I have a preliminary menu written up but have run into stumbling block after stumbling block coming up with's like playing scrabbled and something always prevents you with running with it...without the sarcasm, because I've gotten a lot from fellow chefs on what the client can do with the party...does anyone have any Gluten Free, Corn Free, Dextrose Free,and Chicken free entree ideas that can be produced in high volume utilizing action stations?

Thanx Everyone......
