The not so happy Diner
Those without allergies or food related reactions, going out for a meal with friends and loved ones is a time to socialize, have a good time, connect, and spend some quality time. Maybe it is networking, getting to know someone, sharing ideas, or just catching up.
To someone with Celiac, each trip to a restaurant or eating out is like playing a game of chance. Did the waiter explain to the cook your allergy? Did they understand your concerns? Will the chef cook your meal the way you asked and not accidentally cross contaminate your dish? Will those plating the dish follow the same care and guidance required to make sure your dish is safe? And finally, will the waiter remember to put your dish separate and not contaminate your food when they serve you?
