KEEP HOT FOOD HOT and COLD FOOD COLD.
With all of us enjoying this wonderful warm weather, keeping ourselves healthy in the sun is important as well as how we store our BBQ and buffet foods.
Some simple things to remember……
Plenty of forethought and preparation on the part of the cook, including SAFE FOOD PREPARATION, smart TRANSPORTATION OF FOODS to your destination, (get all your beer, wines and paper plates before your do your food shopping) and always ensure you safely store leftovers.
THE TWO-HOUR RULE
Foods should not sit at room temperature for more than two hours. Keep track of how long foods have been sitting on the buffet table and discard anything there two hours or more. And if it's above 90 degrees, then food should only be out for an hour or less.
AND KEEP COLD FOODS .... COLD
Cold foods should be held at 40°F or colder. Keep foods cold by nesting dishes in bowls of ice or use small serving trays and replace them.
Buono appetito!

Eating a moderate and balanced diet will keep us healthy. Foods from animals and fish supply good-quality proteins, vitamins and minerals and extra energy. They also provide a person with the proteins needed to develop and repair the body and also to build up strong muscles. They are good sources of vitamins, minerals and fibre and help to keep the immune system active.
