Food Allergy Manners

A few days ago, Ask Amy with the Chicago Tribune published a question regarding food allergies. You can read it here:,0,7880316.column?page=2

The writer describes a situation in which she avoided dishes at a dinner party rather than inconvenience her hostess by letting her know about the allergies ahead of time. In a similar situation, what have you done or what would you do? I think I have always informed hosts of Sophie's food allergies, and consulted them on the least obtrusive way to accommodate them (and I always offer to supply the accommodations as well!).

What do you think?

  1. I always ask the hostess ahead of time what is on the menu. Then if there is a potential allergen I ask if I can bring a dish to share or just something different for the boys.
