The Coeliac traveller

Hi I am touring Europe in June and wondered if anyone can tell me how easy it is to find Gluten-free food in Italy, France and Austria.
I will be savouring all the wonderful scents of the patisseries and bakeries knowing I will be unable to eat the fabulous pastries they produce.
At least rice , salads and fruit are o.k. so I won't starve!
Thank you in anticipation, Helsylucy

Hi h,

Enter Coeliac and Celiac in the "search this forum" box for a number of suggestions.

You can get gluten free products in some bakeries. Gluten free foods are easility available in supermarkets and Austria even produces a gluten free beer! You'll be fine.

I got his on what appears to be a good website:

The Austrian Coeliac Society is very helpful, if you give your address and expected arrival date they will advise you on local information as well as more general advice. It is recommended that you do not leave this until the last minute. They operate on limited funds and a contribution of International Reply coupons would be appreciated, to offset expenses. These should be available from a post office.

Having a son who is quite sensitive to wheat and gluten I remember that there was a thread earlier this year on that subject.

I don't seem to be able to copy/paste the links, but I found them by typing
'gluten free in paris' into the search box here and two results came up, both most helpful.

Good luck!

I also just tried 'gluten free in Italy' and results came back for 9 threads previously posted on this subject, so plenty of good advice there for you.

Good luck, and have a great trip!
