Picky eaters are tough. I don't think you need to go out of your way to accomidate bizzare requests. I think there is a "normal" list of foods that are not like by some they include onions, mushrooms, liver, brussel sprouts etc. If you can avoid those go for it. Other things that can be done are serving gravy and sauces on the side. Maybe not sprinking cheese on top of the whole casserole (for example).
I don't think you have to go out of your way to cater to a very picky eater. Make the menu available in advance, tailor it where you can. Then provide peanut butter and jelly or cold cuts. The person isn't going to die from starvation in one weekend at your house.
