Different foods can't touch on the plate. No hot and cold dishes on the same plate. No alcohol while eating food, before or after is fine. Nothing imitation.

All food items must be known items to me. Nothing with feet, legs, toes, etc or moving. No insects and I'm leaving and never coming back. No second changes, period. 

All meals must have an option of shine or wine. 

House must be super clean.

You stay off my plate, I'll stay off of yours.

Food must not be alive when served, nor have hairs in it. 

Lima beans are prohibited, always. 

"No thank you", is Z-speak for "never serve that again."

Keep everything clean throughout the cooking process.

Never use a tasting spoon twice.

Store at, and cook to, proper temperatures.

Have fun while cooking and dining!  :)

For me:

Well done meats always.

Clean cookware.

No un-cooked foods of any kind like Sushi.

Not too much ketchup, mustard, ect. Where you cant taste the main food enough anymore. I know people who do that and im kind of particular about how much ketchup or dip I use on hamburgers for  example. I like being able to taste the meat as well.

Other then that, well.. I dont cook that much to be honest. My rules are pretty basic.

i use to have the issue with food touching each other but i got over that. Now i purposely mix foods together.

i like various veggies but they have to be steamed, stir-fried, or cooked in some way, Otherwise i don't have a problem eating stuff like broccoli, spinach, kale, cauliflower etc..

texture is somewhat of an issue for me. Stuff like eggplant and zucchini i will not eat if its cooked because it reminds of slugs. i will not eat most canned stuff like spaghetti and ravioli.

Wash your hands before handling food,
wash knives and cutting boards whatever you do.
If you start a soda then empty it, too, and
When served cookies the limit is two.

Preferable rules:

1.Clean hands 2.Separate cold and warm foods. 3.Do not touch the food directly with the hands whether on the table or the plates. 4.Meal must be served on a very well cleaned table 5.Cleaning sheets better be available 6.I hate when food is too hot. 7.A big no to alive food, sea food and hairy food. 8.Unrelated meals better be separated because i don't like when they slip through and get the smell or taste of another. 9.Do not speak while you eating, swallow then say whatever you want to say. 10.I'm not religious but i have my own beliefs which i embrace thanking and appreciation before the meal. (always being thankful to the one who served the meal as well)

Yes ... No added/extra salt, sugar or fat wherever possible.  No high fructose corn syrup .. Whenever possible.  Homemade is better than store bought for the most part.  Make sure you check expiration dates on any packaged food you have.  Make sure meat is cooked to proper internal temp.

Yes. I won't eat anything with my hands unless it's burgers, pizza a sandwich, chips normal stuff. I refuse to eat meat with my hands because I find it absolutely disgusting.
