Thanks to Rachel for this update on Cheesecake Factory:
I ate at a Cheesecake Factory a few days ago, and our wonderful waitress informed me that they only use canola oil. There were only a few menu items that I needed to avoid because of soy sauce or mayonnaise. I ate fried macaroni and cheese, and fish and chips (without the tartar sauce and cole slaw). It was quite amazing to be able to eat fried food. They do not fry anything that contains soy, so there isn’t a risk of cross contamination.
That’s another restaurant that I can’t wait to get to good old Akron, Ohio. It sounds like the kids will have a blast there. They get french fries so far and few between, and I can imagine that they’d be all over the fried macaroni and cheese!
