I am going to Tuscany and the Cinque Terra. I have a severe allergy to Walnuts, but I'm unable to find a tranlsation in italian simply for walnut. I can only find Nocce for nut. Is there a word to use just for a walnut specifically?
Also, I know to watch out for pesto as it often contains walnuts instead or with pine nuts. Can anyone tell me of any other dishes to stay clear from? I don't trust menu's to have all ingredients listed, even if I do know the word walnut.
I don't want to end up ordering margherita pizza the whole time just so I feel safe. But I have been caught with walntus in just plain 'ol lasanga even in Canada.
Thanks in advance!
