Food Allergy Consulting: Fox 5, Dining Out with Food Allergies
|Me with Dan Bowens of Fox 5 News at Blue Smoke|
I will thrilled to be contacted by Fox 5 news this week about filming a segment on restaurants in New York City that handle food allergies well.
Here is the segment from the 10 o’clock news April 17, 2014.
Here are some photographic outtakes while Fox 5 was talking with the Chef Eddie.
With Mark Maynard-Parisi, Senior Managing Partner of Blue Smoke.
And then with my favorite dish on the menu: Texas Salt and Pepper ribs.
Did you know: all of the Blue Smoke’s ribs, all of them, are top 8 allergen-free. That wasn’t always the case but recently they realized they could make a few adjustments to make them top 8 allergen-free for everyone. Great job, Blue Smoke!
Thinking of visiting Blue Smoke, I know they’d be happy to have you. Make sure to call ahead, let them know your dietary needs, bring any emergency medications with you and have you anaphylaxis plan with you as well. Here’s my step by step guide to dining out in Allergic Living magazine. Want more? My book, Allergic Girl: Adventures in Living Well with Food Allergies (Wiley, 2011), has a while chapter on dining out with food allergies and you can buy it here online through your favorite bookseller.
