Food allergies: the new challenge for caterers to meet all customer demands


Food allergies and intolerances are becoming more and more important and are sometimes very disabling for diners who wish to enjoy delicious meals without hassle. Whether in restaurants, at school or at work, there are many opportunities to share meals, and perhaps to face potential sources of allergens. Caterers now face a real challenge: to offer menus suitable for people with food allergies and to guarantee safe meals. Find out how The Gourmand Poêlon offers culinary solutions for food allergies!


Food allergies are more present than you think

Out of 1,000 guests, you can rest assured that at least 15 people may have food allergies! Between food intolerances and food allergies, you need to think about all the options. Some of the most common food allergies include:

  • Peanuts
  • Nuts
  • Milk
  • Seafood
  • Eggs
  • Wheat
  • Sesame seeds

These foods are quickly found in catering menus, whether in paella, salad meals or brunches. It is important to remember to satisfy the appetite of your diners who have food allergies in order to avoid them paying too much attention to their plate instead of enjoying it fully at your event.

Catering menus adapted to food allergies

Like restaurants, caterers aim to pay special and meticulous attention to guests’ food allergies. With menu choices with little or no allergen, caterers try to offer nut- and peanut-free, milk-free and wheat-free options. Of course, caterers cannot always guarantee any traces of allergenic ingredients in dishes.

If you know that many of your guests have food allergies, it is necessary to inform your caterer directly. Some alternatives and custom menus can be concocted so as not to take any risks to the health of your guests. The caterer is careful not to make contact between the allergen and the person via food.

The Gourmand Class is a caterer who cares about the health of its customers, which is why it takes time to respect the special requests of its customers, but also to offer personalized menus. To satisfy a clientele that has food allergies, variants just as succulent, surprising and qualitative are offered to them! All you have to do is taste it and ask for more. With safety and attention, your guests can only be delighted at your event.

Would you like to call on a caterer who is very careful about food allergies and who offer suitable meals? For this, do not hesitate to share your food allergies and your special requests with the team of The Gourmand Poêlon!

We really enjoyed the concept of the Gourmand Poêlon. Thanks to your dynamic and friendly team we had an original and different recognition dinner from previous years.

The employees were really impressed to see the preparation of the dishes in the big frying pans. The food was excellent and the service impeccable.

Thank you for making our dinner a great success.

If you are reading this, it means that you are looking for a caterer. Stop looking! You just found it! I chose Le Poelon for a corporate event for 285 people at Astral Media. Of all the events I have organized, it is for the Poelon Gourmand that I received the most comments. It’s unanimous that everyone loves them. This weekend, for 30 years of my daughter, I again called the Pan Gourmand. The quality of the food, presentation and service are outstanding. Employees are a kindness and exceptional professionalism The Pan Gourmand is more than a caterer, it’s an experience. I recommend it for all kinds of events and for all budgets. You won’t be disappointed.
