Do you have a food allergy? I know I do. And if you, like me, ever hesitate when dining in restaurants, it’s because most places don’t talk to people with allergies. Nicole Cogan, too, was shocked at the lack of communication between restaurants and diners when founding her gluten free website, NoBread.
“Some restaurants claim to accommodate allergies, but then create cross-contamination by using the same pasta pots,” says Cogan. “Or they’ll have an amazing dish that’s naturally gluten free, but that’s strangely missing from the gluten free menu. There needs to be a dialogue between the industry and people with allergies.”
Sure, it sounds like a simple problem to fix — but if it’s so simple, why is no one else fixing it? That’s why Cogan built the Internet’s shrine to gluten free dining — a site focused on connecting restaurants with restaurant goers.
