The great advantage of a “Buffet Roast” is that your guests can select their choice and size of meal, ideal for Special Dietary Needs!
Due to the complexity of allergies and dietary needs and that suppliers use terms like “blended oils” we cannot guarantee what our foods may contain. The following is a guide of what may be in our foods. Most people can still enjoy a meal from one of our Spit Roast Buffet Packages but need to careful to read this page and our ingredients list first. It is best to send a link of this page to the guests who enquire as it is too complex for the host to pre-arrange each meal to suit each need. Please do not have guess contact us directly for the same reason.
A handy hint is that the guests with allergies attend the buffet first to minimise cross contamination. Please explain to your guests that although we will assist as much as possible we do not claim to be an “Allergy Free Food” caterer nor charge accordingly.
All of the information below is sourced from what is believed to be reliable information from the internet. It is not written by a professional and so is not to be relied on, i strongly advise that guests with special dietary needs check their own requirements accordingly.
If you have Vegans, Vegetarians, people who suffer from Fructose Malabsorption or Lactose intolerance we have our “Vegan Rice” dish. Each individual serve is $4.50 and for orders of 8 or more the price drops to $3.50 per serve. These guests are welcome to help themselves to the buffet as well as the rice dish, we still allow the same portion of meat for these guests regardless as many special needs guests still enjoy meat.
Our “Vegan Rice” dish contains Saffron (imitation), white rice, peas, corn, carrots, celery, spring onion, salt, pepper and a small amount of sugar.
Coeliac disease is an immune disease caused by gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, triticale and oats. When a person with coeliac disease eats gluten, an inappropriate immune reaction causes inflammation and damage to their small bowel (intestine). A lifelong gluten-free diet is the only treatment.”Gluten Free” is a word we do not like to use as it suggests that there is no gluten at all. We use the term “Flourless” as we do not add flour to a dish unless stated otherwise. As we prepare other dishes in our commercial kitchen there may be traces of flour and other ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction so therefore cannot guarantee it.Most Coeliacs can eat everything at our spit roast buffets other than the obvious, eg, bread, pasta salad, gravy. It is best to serve them first to avoid cross contamination. Some salad dressing may effect the most sensitive so send a link of this page to the guests who enquire so they can check the link below for our ingredients list and compare against your menu package chosen.If you select hot vegetables instead of salads most people with this condition can eat most foods from one of our

Lactose intolerance is when a person has difficulty or is unable to digest milk sugars from dairy products. It is rare for Caucasians to develop lactose intolerance. The condition is more common among Australian Aborigines and people from Asia, Africa, the Middle East and some Mediterranean countries. Symptoms include bloating, gas, abdominal pain and diarrhoea. Many babies are wrongly assumed to have lactose intolerance.Lactose is present in two large food categories—conventional dairy products, and as a food additive (casein, caseinate, whey), which may contain traces of lactose. Foods that may contain hidden lactose include:Processed breakfast cereals, Cheese sauce, Cream soups, Custard, Milk chocolate, Pancakes and pikelets, Scrambled eggs, Quiche, Muesli bars, Some breads and margarine (containing milk).Most Lactose intolerant people can eat everything at our spit roast buffets other than the obvious, eg, margarine and sour cream.

Fructose malabsorption is a digestive disorder in which absorption of fructose is impaired by deficient fructose carriers in the small intestine’s enterocytes. This results in an increased concentration of fructose in the entire intestine. Glucose enhances absorption of fructose, so fructose from foods with fructose-to-glucose ratio <1, like bananas, is readily absorbed.Foods to avoid include artichokes, asparagus, leeks, onions and wheat-containing products, including most beers, breads, cakes, biscuits, breakfast cereals, pies, pastas, pizzas, and some noodles. Fruits, apple, pear, guava, honeydew melon, pawpaw, , watermelon.
Dried fruit – apple, currant, date, fig, pear, raisin and sultana.Commercially, fructose is frequently derived from sugar cane, sugar beets and corn. All forms of fructose, including fruits and juices, are commonly added to foods and drinks. To determine what food a person can eat suffering from Fructose Malabsorption varies from person to person and is complicated so best to leave the decision to the guest.
