Accommodating guests with food allergies. If you are hosting a large cocktail party this should not be an issue, but for an intimate gathering or dinner party, you will want to ask your guests ahead of time if they have any food allergies you should be aware of. Accommodate your guests by serving a variety of foods they can eat, and make sure you have ample amounts of side dishes to compensate if you unexpectedly find you have a guest who is unable to eat the entree you have offered.
