Apple Academic Press Plans New Book on Food Allergies for Restaurant Managers

Apple Academic Press Plans New Book on Food Allergies for Restaurant Managers

Dr. Mahmood Khan, senior editor in hospitality/tourism for Apple Academic Press, invites
faculty and professionals to contribute to his forthcoming new handbook on food allergies for restaurant managers, to be published by Apple Academic Press. Tentatively titled Handbook of Food Allergies for Restaurant Managers, this handbook will be designed as a reference book for professionals at restaurants, cafeterias, dining halls, cafes, diners, fastfood establishments, and more. According to a study released in 2013 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, food allergies among children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011. The number of people who have a food allergy is growing, but there is no clear answer as to why. This volume addresses this important topic from the restaurant manager’s point of view.
