Ideas for wheat free meals (entertaining)

I'm having friends over soon, one of whom can't eat wheat (but can eat spelt and rye). Does anyone have any foolproof ideas for summer recipes? Thoughts so far have been a bbq, something like a spaghetti with wheat free pasta and maybe a pavlova or something, but would love to hear some more ideas!

Are they allergic or is it just a dietary preference?

Greek salad, slow roast shoulder of lamb and either new potatoes and pitta breads (for the wheat eating peeps).

Ice cream, pavlova, fruit salad, Elton mess

BBQ is good, but check any sauces/ marinades, even stock, potatoes, rice salad, normal salads (no cous cous).

Indian can be good for wheat free

They are allergic. Lots of great ideas thank you, and thanks for the heads up, I will definitely be checking! Complicating matters further I am pregnant and another friend is quite a fussy eater!

You’ll need to be super careful then. I’d worry about cross contamination with bread at a bbq. Everything with wheat will need to be completely separate.

Rice or potatoes as the carbs, and go from there. Cold roast joint with jacket potatoes, paella, risotto, Indian all work.

Pavlova, icecream, fruit, cooked fruit, mouse all work for deserts.
