Paris with PA -- Tricky to manage
I'm on a bit of a roll now with my travel posts.... We love to travel and try not to let the peanut allergy limit our adventures in this regard. We have rarely had problems iwth the peanut allergy when travelling, except for in Paris of all places, and so I thought I should mention that Paris with peanut allergy is actually a bit difficult.
The majority of the restaurants in Paris seem to cook with peanut oil, for some reason -- the last thing I expected really. As we were there for a week, we basically just ate at Italian restaurants, with the occasional fondue meal when we got sick of eating pizza and pasta.
Bakeries/patisserie were full of nuts and so the cross contamination risk we felt was too high.
Still a great city, just a bit tricky with the nut allergy.
