I have a gluten sensitivity and was lactose intolerant for a time and I am totally frustrated at eating out, because of the lack of knowledge on allergies and cross contamination by management, serving, and kitchen staff, and also the lack of choices. Because of this I am setting up a Food Allergy Training Consultancy to educate the Catering industry including all sectors of the Food service industry. I am currently carrying out research if CD or GF sufferers would eat at certified venues (would it give you more confidence?) as opposed to those venues who have completed on-line training or have in-house training (not specialised) If you are able to place comments below or email me at email@example.com. I would also like to know if you would be willing to take part in market research in the future either for Allergy friendly foods, or venues (please send me your email)
Also I am interested in hearing stories both positive and negative of your eating out experiences in venues which have specific GF options.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post and for your support - "Eating out with confidence should be available to everyone"!!!
