Eating clean meat is important for the health of the conference attendees. I think you would be better able to make decisions about the food if you would talk to the hotels kitchen. Any cook worth his salt will be able to tell you what type of meat he is using, and will know where to get appropriate type of meat. As for looking through the database and not seeing anyone else listed for "kosher", that is because your covenient fill-out form does not have an option for kosher. How can someone select an option that isn't mentioned? Please talk to the hotel kitchen. What I am asking is very reasonable, and any European or North American kitchen would have no problem at all providing the type of meat I require. If the kitchen at the hotel isn't capable of this, I have to question why you booked a second rate third world hotel. Can I expect cockroaches under the bed as well as pork in my salad?

I require meat that is sheep, goat, beef, quail, chicken, turkey, or salmon. Pork, duck, and seafood are unlawful. Seaweed and mushrooms are also unlawful. The meat must be bled immediately after it is killed; the animals must not be slaughtered by strangling. The hotel should be able to confirm this information about the meat. At least one other attendee has the same dietary restrictions, except in his case he also cannot eat anything with nuts (peanuts, almonds, etc) or he will go into cardiac arrest. If the hotel cannot accomodate these dietary needs, please let me know as soon as possible.I am pretty sure that the hotel can not go to that length, economically. However i am happy to hear that you can eat vegan and even somevegetarian food, then.there is no other attendee requireing kosher food. we just looked through the database again.
