In Topic: Traveling To France & Germany

10 July 2012 - 10:48 AM

I don't mean to butt into a conversation, but I just wanted to clarify...

What makes bratwurst potentially unsafe to eat in a restaurant is the spices in it? So the actual inside is completely meat and no gluten filler?

I too am going to be backpacking through berlin for a couple of days and am a celiac with very limited german skills (introductory german from about 8 years ago).

So far I've read that currywurst should be okay, and now have your recommendation of German chocolate. I REALY want to try traditional german foods while in Germany... But I don't want to be ill, especially while traveling...

Any suggestions on 'traditional' dishes (other than currywurst, pork knuckle, chocolate)...

Thank you!!!! (Danke)

In Topic: gluten-free In Italy-Venice

Ciao Veronica,

My name is Alyssa and I am going to Italy in 9 days! I've heard that Venice is one of the worst parts of Italy for a celiac to find safe foods to eat... is this true? I don't speak italian (although I have learned the phrase "Io sono celiaca" and 'senza glutine per favore" as well as various other menial phrases (e.g. grazie). I'm a student that will be backpacking through Venice for a couple of days.

I had read that everyone is super aware of celiac, so I wasn't planning on searching out restaurants/ places where I can eat ahead of time... I was just going to say that phrase and wing it.... I've read that polenta and risoto are staples of Venice and that those are both gluten-free...

Grazie!!!!
