Although there is some information on food allergies in this book, most of the anecdotal references are for a gluten-free diet, so I find it to be of somewhat limited use for my peanut-allergy family. That being said, there are some very helpful sections. An interview with a chef offers suggestions for dining out; a discussion of various ethnic foods includes typical allergens used in that type of cooking (although peanuts were missing from Chinese food, and other peanut-allergy sources have recommended avoiding Chinese reataurants altogether). A listing of "friendly" national restaurants includes phone and Internet contact information as well as a listing of whether allergens or gluten ingredients are listed on the website. Although the definition of allergy or gluten-friendly restaurants may vary from person to person (there were restaurants listed that I would not take my peanut-allergic son to), it is helpful to have the contact information at one's fingertips. Likewise, a listing of "friendly" local restaurants seemed to focus more on gluten awareness at those locations, but the contact information would also be useful for those with food allergies.

All in all, I will use portions of this book in conjunction with other resources I have, and it will likely have its home in the car as a ready reference.

Updates appear to be planned, and will probably be necessary as restaurant information could change frequently. A downloadable update to the restaurant contact and website information would be ideal.
