Every holiday I brace myself for the restricted eater. How many will I have? What will be the diet d’jour this year? Guests not eating this or that can often be a drag for the holiday host. Is your dairy-free, egg-free, eggnog cup half full or half empty? Get over it. Take a deep breath and improvise. Vegans need love too. Make enough to share with the rest of the table or present your privileged guests with something real, thought out and special. In some countries, the guest is god. Treat all guests alike.
