Dietary Restrictions

Dietary Restrictions

The information contained herein is quoted from Social Usage and Protocol Handbook: A Guide for Personnel of the U.S. Navy (OPNAVINST 1710.7 dated 17 JUL 1979)

When entertaining foreign guests, it is important to consider any dietary restrictions they may have, prior to planning the menu. Basic rules of thumb are that Muslims and Jews do not eat pork. Those of the Hindu and Buddhist faith do not eat beef. The following chart lists very general restrictions found in certain countries. This does not allow for individual dietary restrictions due to religious, medical, or personal preferences. Therefore, one should determine if these restrictions exist. In general, fish and fowl are universally acceptable. When restrictions do exist, guard against serving any derivation of that item. Take particular note to avoid serving combinations of veal and ham or chicken and ham, both of which are unacceptable to Muslims and Jews.

It is always wise to have a variety of nonalcoholic beverages available to those who prefer them.
