School assignment help

My oldest daughter (nearly 15) has a food tech. assignment which she has to plan 4 savoury and 4 sweet finger food recipes for a group which includes a person with nut allergies, a muslim and a person who is lactose intolerant (they are allowed trace amounts) all 3 must be able to eat all the foods! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
PS I am not doing the assignement for her, just relaying her message

What did the teacher offer in terms of where they find this information? Did she/he offer any resources? I can understand nut allergies and milk, but I have no idea what muslims do or do not eat.

Muslims are no pork for sure. I think their dietary requirements are very similar to Jewish ones.

And also no wine/alcohol for Muslims, even if you cook the wine off of the food.

Humm .. that is kind of a strange mix ......

Eleminate any nut or dairy products - that takes care of two problems. That basically leaves you with looking for Halal recipes (the Muslim version of Jewish Kosher - which is not the same) that do not include dairy or nuts.

halal represents the way in which an animal is slaughtered(in the name of "god"/Alah").There are more technicalities in a kosher kitchen. There are pleny of dishes that can meet both needs, it is just a matter of "P.C." preperation and cooking.
