Food Safety: From Our Kitchen to Your Table
When you pick up a meal from Hillbilly Catering, you’re not just getting a dish made with care; you’re getting our commitment to food safety. But what happens once that meal leaves our kitchen?
Here’s how you can ensure every bite stays safe.
Hand Washing: The First Defense
Before you dive into setting up your meal, make sure your hands are clean. Washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is the golden rule, not just for chefs but for anyone handling food. It’s simple, but it’s the most effective way to prevent the spread of germs.
Clean Surfaces: The Set-Up Stage
Cleanliness is next to deliciousness. Wipe down all surfaces where you'll be setting up food. Whether it's countertops or dining tables, a clean space means a safe space for your catered delights.
The Danger Zone: Keep It Tight
The “Danger Zone” for food temperatures is between 40°F and 140°F. It’s crucial to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Use warming trays and coolers to maintain safe temperatures. This isn’t just good practice—it’s a safety must.
