what dishes in spain typically contain nuts?

Aleta, I am researching still--we leave in 2 wks. Is the chocolate used in Granja Viader a 'may contain' nuts? did you read the labels for the chocolate when you were in there? I don't see an email to contact Granja about that. thanks!

will do---we always always double and triple check everything when it comes to a nut allergy. This forum offers info from experienced persons who have travelled or live in that particular area and knows some of the 'lowdown'. THANK YOU!!!

Crepes in Paris and tree nut allergy

we are going to eat french baguettes and cheese (brie?) and at Breizh Cafe all the time. I have called Breizh cafe and they said that they can do it and will do it. we are not going to do any fine dining. we are going to stay in a castle in normandy and i am going to contact them in advance. And then there is always mcdonalds (yuck) and subway (yuck) but at least it is nut free. Top priority.

we have a translation from english to french explaining the information and lists all sources of tree nuts etc

where to get a good kabab in oxford for someone with a tree nut allergy?

WIth a nut allergy, the cross contamination issue is ever-present. Didn't know if some kebab vans also sold items containing nuts? I haven't been to england in 20 years (WOW!). Just trying to learn as much as i can before we head out to england! I guess there is always mcdonalds and subway but i don't want to eat those foods there even though i know the ingredients since they are all available online and clearly spell out what does and doesn't contain nuts. thanks!!

tree nut allergy and eating pub sandwiches in London

thank you all sooooo much. i have found that Rainforest cafe in london has 'nut free' noted on their menu items that are nut free. Also, Wagamama's has a separate menu as to what is nut free. Now i am looking at McVities Digestives which i just LOVE. I can eat digestives the entire time i am there. and also looking at kebabs! Need to check out the kebab bread and meat!

Crepes in Paris and tree nut allergy

hi! thank you so much! is there a big creperie that is common around paris/france ----maybe i can contact them in advance to see if they can make a crepe that would be nut-free? where do you usually get crepes (are you allergic to tree nuts too?) in paris?

tree nut allergy and eating pub sandwiches in London

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! I found out about Chowhound from a friend of mine, Mila Oh (moh) who recently passed away---she was an animated chowhound member who will be missed!

we are going to london and paris this summer and have a son with a tree nut allergy. PhilD, since you are allergic to tree nuts, you probably really know where to go and not go. We will be travelling around so pubs will be easy to go in and get a pub sandwich (i remember those from 1985 when i was in england!) Any info you can type would be fabulous because i haven't been able to get much information so far despite hours searching on the internet.

so if you are online and want to type up some info, I will take it! thank you so much!!!!

any good fish and chips places in london or oxford?

Passing of Mila Oh (aka moh)

Mila will be greatly missed in the ophthalmology community. She was a very skilled vitreoretinal surgeon who has helped many people regain their vision, both in Canada and in the US. Truly an impressive human being! (she was also an amazing ice hockey player!)
