ROAD FOOD


If you plan to visit Austria and do some driving, look for a rest stop along the major highways, called LANDZEIT.


Seriously good, fresh cooked food along the road. Not Tim Horton's, or stale Hot Dogs, but freshly prepared dishes, carving stations, desserts such as apple strudel, a large selection of fresh fruits and Gelato, great coffee and much much more.
I wanted to take more pictures, but unfortunately a busy body Chef, who clearly learned how to goose step from his father, kept yelling at me:
 " NEIN, NEIN, NEIN. DASS IST VERBOTEN! AUS. WEG.. NIX DA." Inglorious Basterds came to mind. What a schmuck.

Anyway. Besides that Chef Nazi, it was a great pit stop during our drives across Austria. For Celiacs, I recommend to ask for the manager to ensure what is available for you. Don't ask for ze Chef, he is really unfriendly and does not care....

And if you ate too much and don't feel like driving anymore, they also rent rooms for a good night sleep at very reasonable rates.

I wanted to show you this article about researchers who found celiac disease to be more common among children born in Massachusetts during spring or summer. Parents with children born during spring or summer are urged to be more cautious of the time frame for introducing first cereals (gluten products).

I think this is very interesting holistically in how we are framing the occurrence of gluten intolerance in children down the road.
