I think that if I invite someone to eat at my house then that carries an obligation to feed them in a way that's acceptable to them, without making them feel as though they're being a burden on me. I actively enjoy catering for special diets though.

Veggie food I dislike: cucumber.

That brings up a point that often sticks in my head: What's the different between a food with no meat in and a veggie food?

I'd class fake meat things and maybe soya as "veggie food", but this is probably because I am a meater who likes cucumber :)

As a general issue, I'd say there's no real difference. There was a debate in the letters column of the Vegetarian Society magazine a while back, where some people were arguing that all vegetarian food should go in one aisle together in the supermarket, rather than being scattered around (e.g. Quorn sausages next to pork sausages). I think the main objection to that is pizza: lots of people would happily eat a basic cheese and tomato pizza without thinking of it as a vegetarian option.

In this context, I'm asking about veggie stuff because I'm not particularly concerned if you don't like meat X :)
