If someone is coming over, I do like to ask them if they have allergies or preferences.

Mostly because I appreciate a challenge!

But also because I like to know up front. My heart sinks if someone looks at a carefully crafted dish and says "I can't stand " < insert main ingredient >.

Finally, I'd also like to be able to point out the dish to someone sensitive to an ingredient. For example, peanuts. Anaphalaxis is a terrible way to begin dinner.

I do ask people what they like and what they can't or won't eat. But there are, hmm, several dozen people in community and at least a dozen or so who eat off my table at different times. They all have different parameters. So I tell them to remind me, because I can't remember it all myself. I do usually learn the top few points for anyone who eats with us frequently, though.
