I have yet to share this on the blog, but I have a new found milk allergy! When I first received the news I said to my mom, "this is hard, I really like food". I've come to realize it's not savory food that's the hard part but desserts. I look forward to sharing this new part of my life on the blog going forward.
You know what is surprisingly hard to do as a dairy-free person? Go out to dinner. It's shocking just how many people don't know that butter is a milk product - I'm stunned that people in the food industry aren't required to know this.
Going out to dinner is a huge part of my family's life, so it's particularly important for us to find customer friendly restaurants that cater to dietary requests. The other evening we ate at Lincoln - it was an incredible experience. The staff was very friendly and pointed out what did and did not include dairy within their menu. They even offered a variety of sorbets as a dessert - now one of the only sweets I can eat.
I would highly recommend Lincoln for a night out. While it is expensive, the experience and food make the steep prices totally worthwhile.
