So you are hosting a dinner party but you don't want to serve food that your guests either don't like or can't eat. How can you find out their preferences? Our resident expert, Mychael Chang, gives you the answer.
Is there a tactful way to find out friends' food preferences before having them over for dinner? Nothing is worse than finding out they have food allergies or serving a vegan red meat!
The expert answers:
My experience is that you should use ingredients and flavors that please most palates. For example, most people like green beans, broccoli, butter lettuce, potatoes etc. You might want to stay away from things such as eggplant, peppers, mushrooms, brussel sprouts, cilantro and curry as they tend to be more acquired tastes.
