Allergic Girl & Serious Eats

Welcome Serious Eaters! Have a look around, and enjoy!

For regular AG readers, there's probably more than you ever needed to know about where my favorite fro-yo shop is (one hint: the basement of a major NYC department store) and other things Allergic Girl and Worry-Free all on SeriousEats.com.

Sloane- THANKS! You rock! I have always been around people with serious food (and other) allergies because both of my parents work with children with special needs, primarily autism but many many others. I was always designated to cook for staff parties and gatherings because my Mom's staff could rely on our house/kitchen and sensitivity towards food allergies. We created some amazing meals but I never realized the impact until I lived with one of my best friends who has severe allergies. Yet, being in our mid-20s we couldn't give up going out so we've compiled a list of all the "safe" places and dishes in town. When I was diagnosed with a blood disorder as a teen the medications (that I will take for the rest of my life) caused an interaction with lactose that are potentially life threatening. Thanks to your blog I have a place to go that still speaks to the foodie in me but also provides great advice! Thanks again! PS Ever heard of "Coconut Bliss"? It's an amazing DF ice cream from Eugene OR with flavor like honey jasmine...

great interview! i came meandering over here from serious eats because i too discovered one of my first food allergies was to lox, and i've never met anyone else with that same allergy. it's a bit mysterious to me, because i'm allergic to some kinds of fish but not all (and not to shellfish), and the reaction is unpleasant enough that i'm not so inclined to do a thorough sampling to figure out exactly which. i don't know if it's the fish itself or the way its processed, but it's something i've always been curious about, especially with all the studies on omega 3 fatty acids and whatnot.

I too came over from the Serious Eats posting. I don't have food allergies per se, but I do have other issues (ibs and gerd)that can make going out to eat challenging. I look forward to reading your posts. Oh and I linked to you on my blog!
