I’m being very careful in my kitchen, because how awful would it be to give diarrhea to a bunch of people who are living in tents without running water?!? Don’t want to do that! I have my King County food-worker card, which means I have learned the fundamentals of food safety. (There’s an informative lesson/quiz at this site where you can pay $10 online and get your card.)
I pay attention to two fundamental things, both of which are concerned with keeping harmful bacteria out of the food I serve:
- food temperature, and;
- surface and utensil sanitation.
