    I'd say it depends on how vegetarian aware you are yourself, if I had people coming I didn't know that well, I'd ask if there was any vegetarian as I like it myself and can cook up a few super veggie courses.

    My mother still thinks that chicken and fish are vegetarian, or ham, cos it's not a big dirty lump of steak.

    I'd have thought it was much worse manners for non-vegetarians to knowingly invite a vegetarian to eat at their house without offering such an option.

    "Why don't you come to my house and I'll fill the table with food you can't eat?" isn't really a very tempting invitation.

    Who has vegetarian friends?
    Apart from superior vegans?

    Isn't chicken a type of vegetable?

    Should people who are 'picky eaters' avoid dinner parties?
    You know the ones

    "Is there onion/garlic/mushroom in that? - I don't eat onion/garlic/mushroom"

    "Does anyone want my salad/stuffing/asparagus?" as the plate is held aloft with a knife poised to scrape the unwanted food on to someone else's plate.

    Yes, and he didn't even bring a SuperValu flan!
