Greetings from Italy! In case you were wondering where I have been recently, I am on vacation in Calabria. Curinga to be exact. If you follow my other blog, Carmelo Orlando, you know that I am doing geneology research on my grandfather’s side of the family.
With this post, I would like to report that it has been very easy to eat gluten-free in Italy. It was also very easy to eat on the plane! I don’t know what other airlines are like, but Alitalia had a gluten-free meal option. I didn’t know about it until I heard the steward speaking to a passenger behind me. He was confirming that the passenger would be eating “senza glutine”. When I heard him say “senza glutine”, I flagged him down and asked if I could also have a gluten-free dinner. No problem what so ever!
Was the food good? Ehh… it was typical airplane food. The good part was that I got served before everyone else and I probably ate better than the rest.
My hats go off to Alitalia for making my flight over to Rome and very good one! Molto grazie a Alitalia!
