True, but are you really going to trust a chef with the very specific requirements of that diet? I wouldn't. My brother-in-law is a chef and his wife is a vegan, and let me just tell you he would serve her soup with cream in it and not even guess it's not part of her plan. Unless the chef is a vegan, anything goes.
