Each cuisine describes suggested dishes, meal descriptions and potential food allergen considerations. To determine the 175-plus menu items provided in these chapters, thousands of menus and recipes from all over the world were researched to identify which items were most commonly found in each cuisine. Once established, each was then reviewed to determine which had the highest likelihood of being gluten and wheat-free. The selection was further narrowed down by which dishes had the highest likelihood of not including the eight other food allergens. Then, ingredients, food preparation techniques, hidden allergens & cross-contamination concerns were defined for each menu item. To ensure accuracy, rigorous quality assurance testing was also conducted with chefs, restaurants & culinary schools world-wide to confirm each of the descriptions, considerations and traditional/non-traditional culinary practices. Other sections of the book focus on additional eating out and travel guidelines including the proven guest and restaurant approach to safe eating experiences, the learning curve for special diets and the collaborative process.
