Halacha - Guests
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

First of all, regarding Jewish but irreligious guests, the Chazon Ish defined those who are forbidden to cook for in a manner that excludes most non observant Jews today. Only someone aware of the Halacha and its reasoning who rebels against it nonetheless is equated to a non-Jew.

However, regarding an actual Goy there is no difference between a meal and desert. Furthermore, the Mishna Berura writes that the act of inviting is forbidden by Rabbinic decree, and even if all of the food it already prepared it remains forbidden even though there is little risk that you will actually cook more food subsequently.
