You know, that just might be the key here to getting a grip on at least events where it's pot luck (catered events would be a whole other issue. LOL).
If I can envision people drooling, spitting, sneezing, coughing, licking the spoon, their children's dirty hands as part of their recipe I am sure I will not want anything that does not seem to be properly prepared.
I will give that a try.
