English version: I have celiac disease, and I cannot eat gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, rye, orzo, farro, and often in oats. I will become very ill if I eat food, marinades, soup or sauces containing wheat, barley, rye, semolina, or oats. This disease affects me if I eat these ingredients, but also if the food is fried in the same oil used to fry unsafe foods. In those cases, the cross-contamination will also make me sick. Even a sprinkle of flour on the grill pan, or in the sauce or soup will make me ill. I cannot eat soup that has bread blended into it, or meat/sausages with bread as an ingredient (such as meatballs or some sausages). Can you please help me choose something that does not include any wheat, rye, barley, oats, bread or pasta? I can eat food containing rice, chickpeas, tapioca, cassava, potatoes, corn, beans, lentils, vegetables, cheese, fruit, eggs, meat, chicken, or fish – as long as they are not cooked with wheat flour or breadcrumbs. This means I also cannot eat battered or breaded dishes, unless they are breaded in only rice flour, corn flour, chickpea flour or tapioca flour, and fried in separate uncontaminated oil. Thank you for your help. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you, but I have to be very careful when I eat.
