    I agree with the EPI advice but would like to add something. If you avoid certain foods because of religious reasons I’d mention it at that point as well. (such as Jews or Muslims not eating pork). As a hostess, I’d definitely like to know up front if any of my guests are allergic to a certain item.

    I keep a list of what my regular dinner guests cannot eat. When I invite someone new, I ask them if there is anything they absolutely won’t eat. It’s dispiriting to work hard on a meal which your guests do not eat. One friend will not eat mushrooms ever and another refuses paprika. I’m glad I asked because I view those particular items as innocuous.
