Not always possible, if you take into account dietary preferences. I've

all-vegan, all the time.

Do other people see the political bent to this. Choosing to not eat something, for whatever reason, seems to be quite different than refusing to attend a dinner.

From a dietary restriction standpont, I don't see a reason for all dishes
to be edible by all attendees as long as a good meal can be had by all attendees. I suspect this may take some education.

Before someone jumps on me, this does not mean that serious life threatening allergies should be ignored. Those sorts of issues are a good reason to ban certain foods from the kitchen.

It's what I can remember in time to use.
