How to Take Your Food Allergies Out to Dinner. From WSJ:
"Rule No. 1 for worried diners: Make sure the waiter understands and respects what you’re talking about. If you have any doubts, get up and walk out of the restaurant, top chefs told Miller. If the waiter doesn’t get the message, the folks in the kitchen never will."
Eight top allergens account for 90 percent of all food allergies. The 8 top allergens can be remembered by the mnemonic TEMPS WFS:
Tree nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts)
Shellfish (crab, lobster, shrimp)
