These are not food allergies, they are dietary needs and/or preferences. But they aren't allergies.

One from left field. Woman has a lung transplant, eats peanut butter and has allergic reaction. The donor had an allergy to peanuts.

As one who eats everything that I think tastes good, it's all semantics to me. Most of the time, it's simply a personal preference or a lifestyle choice (and occasionally, a method of gaining attention). Allergies vs intolerance. Vegan vs vegetarian vs pescatarian vs lacto-ovo vs fruitarian.

Don't get me wrong - I'm WELL AWARE of the differences. And I'm well aware that genuine food allergies and celiac disease ARE VERY SERIOUS HEALTH CONCERNS.

Which generally is why I ALWAYS ask when I invite people for dinner. I don't rely on my memory with infrequent guests - I repeat the question. Hell, if I'm thinking of serving something that I know may not be universally enjoyed, like lamb, I make sure ahead of time.

I've rarely had anyone ask me those questions.

I would not use the butter on all of the shrimp, because you did not state whether the no-dairy is by choice or due to allergy. Plenty of good ideas up thread. Just make a nice salad for appetizers.

This. The lack of butter will not make that much differance to the taste.

I got an anonymous rep to this post saying "the bf is dairy free so no butter."

Reading comprehension is important, people.

To say nothing of the word "vegan" entering this thread. I never said that at all.

Sorry, I misunderstood. He's not vegan, got it. I do stand by my original statement that being a good host means catering to your guests and respecting food choices that may be due to health, moral, or environmental reasons.
