Part Two: Proper Etiquette for a Gluten Intolerant Person When Dining at a Friend's House.
Like the restaurant dining deal in Part One, call the host of the dinner party in advance. Explain your dietary restrictions in terms of what you can and cannot eat. It may be helpful to read Allergic Girl Sloane Miller's 7 tips for being a great allergic guest. She presents a slightly different scenario. But you'll get the idea of what it takes to make the dinner guest experience an enjoyable and safe one.
One more thing. Definitely bring a dish to share. (Gluten free, of course.) Even though you may be hands-on in the kitchen, it's extra assurance that you won't starve.
