Having a house guest arrive in a few hours who is a "meat and potatoes" person to the point that they eat the same breakfast every morning and won't try anything that’s not “American”. So I’m naturally at a loss on what to cook for my guest. I’m sure I’m not the only one out here with some non-chowhound friends/family. What do you do try to serve them? Do you try to introduce them to new foods/cuisines? Or just throw up your hands and save the truffles and goat cheese for people who appreciate them? :)
As an example...I had a friend take a beautiful bolognese and dump two cans of red marinara sauce into it because she "likes it saucy."
