TORONTO—When chef Neil Lomas and registered nurse Wendy Zeh found themselves with food allergies and sensitivities, they decided to combine their knowledge to create a haven for eaters with restricted diets.

$ 5 . 9 5

The married couple opened Feast (Fabulous Eats for the Allergic and Sensitive Type), an allergy-friendly gourmet food store and takeout, on Toronto’s Queen Street West in early July. “Allergy-restricted folks are underserviced,” Zeh told ORN. “People should be treated with the same respect or caution, regardless of what they can eat.” Not only is the store’s in-house kitchen free from gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish, but staff are trained and certified on food allergens through Anaphylaxis Canada. They have all signed an agreement stating they will not bring any products containing gluten or the top eight allergens into the store. Customers bearing outside ingredients are politely stopped at the door to keep the allergen-free facility intact. All ingredients and products at risk of cross contamination are verified with the distributor or manufacturer. Lomas and Zeh hope to eventually expand the allergy-free list to include items such as mustard. Continued on page 3
