We Eat Our Way Through An Epic Four-Day Indian Wedding Feast

One year removed from attending a "small" wedding - 1300 people - in Chandigharr. There were 100 different foods to eat. However, the best meal we had, during the week's worth of ceremonies, was during the Engagement Party. In the groom's family backyard, they had arranged 20 or so street vendors to serve. All of the smells, over which my wife and I had been drooling in the market places, were now cleared for consumption (by our protective hosts.) Goat brain curry, daal machni, kulfi, et al... All served with Kingfisher beer! Incredible!

Alternative Ingredients for Food Sensitivities

Thanks friends, ed.

Alternative Ingredients for Food Sensitivities

My wife suffers from migraines which are triggered from these (so far only these) ingredients: strawberries, red wine, and oranges. Strawberries are 99% replaceable by other berries. I can make do without the red wine, or substitute red wine vinegar or white wine depending on the recipe. Oranges are troublesome. I'm hesitant to use the zest, but I can't replace it with lemon, lime, or grapefruit. Same thing for a recipe calling for OJ.
Does anyone have a similar situation or recommendations? Thanks in advance. ed
