Safely Host Holiday Dinner Events

Holidays are approaching quickly which means many people will be gathering for banquets or small parties. Whether its in the back room or small section of your dining room at your house, you should consider some of these helpful tips. If you are serving hot food, make sure it is held at a minimum of 135 degrees to ensure proper food safety temperature. You can use a chafing dish to accomplish this or a counter top electric warmer. Keep a thermometer on hand to ensure guest safety. A good viable option if you have both hot and cold food items would be to get a thermometer that goes from 0F to 220F because it will cover the cold and the hot temperatures for safe holding. (Cold should be 41 or below.)
Other items to consider are serving utensils, tongs, and pie servers. Whether you are entertaining at home or at the restaurant you want to keep your friends and customers safe and well for the holiday season.
