So I was intrigued by a post I came across on another blog about partying on a restricted diet. The blogger of that post notes that some hosts might be tempted not to invite people on restricted diets because of the difficulty serving them presents. That’s a sad statement for those of us living on restricted diets to hear but likely all too true.
There’s also advice about being a gracious guest. I think the obligation to be gracious falls upon the host. When I host parties, I always check with guests about dietary preferences and do my best to have a variety of dishes for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
The one exception I make is to cook without salt and use as many low-salt ingredients as I can find. Guests can always add salt. For me, it’s poison. Why would I put poison on food for my guests?
