Sloane Miller, Allergic Girl , author, coach and advocate, and I met Chef Kelvin Fernandez at the Strand American Bistro last week where he prepared a fully allergen-free lunch for us. Chef Kelvin is not only the youngest executive chef in Manhattan at 26, he also has a shellfish allergy. Recently, Chef Kelvin appeared on CHOPPED on the Food Network where he won in the category of shellfish without being able to taste a thing. Dining Out With Allergic Girl is our second episode in this series (produced by my company Numodo). The series is well loved by the millions of food allergic people who are looking for positive ways to speak to their Chef, server and restaurant manager in order to keep their meals safe from their food allergens. Our thanks to Chef Kelvin Fernandez, and the Strand American Bistro at The Strand NYC for making our allergen-free lunch safe and delicious!
