What do I do if someone brings a guest who has a ton of dietary restrictions without giving me advanced warning?
Alex answers this question as I would, “My house my rules.” I also found myself chuckling and rolling my eyes at this query. This has happened to me on more than one occasion as my spouse is a chef by trade, and individuals have come to think he will just whip up a culinary delight for them. That is not the case when the menu is set. When this happens I simply say, “This is the meal we have planned; I wish I knew you were coming.” End of discussion. I then follow up with the guest who brought them, letting them know how inappropriate the invite was. If I am familiar with the uninvited guest, I would welcome them to peruse my pantry, cupboards, and kitchen for a snack.
