Being Safe in the Kitchen
Listen to this page
We do not want to be worried about cooking and not enjoying it as cooking should be a fun experience for you and everyone around you
Here a few things to keep an eye out to ensure YOU are safe in the kitchen.
- Wash your hands and clean worktops and utensils well – especially before you touch raw meat, go to the toilet, touch pets or touch the bin.
- Dry your hands properly - if they’re wet they’ll spread bacteria more easily.
- Don’t wash raw meat before cooking it. You could splash bacteria onto worktops and utensils. YUK!!!!!
- Change dish cloths and tea towels regularly - else you could be growing gross bacteria.
- Keep all sharp objects away from the ends of surfaces and away to ensure no little accidents happen
- That all raw meat and fish are kept away from ready-to-eat foods.
- The labels on packets of food, and store and cook foods according to the instructions.
- That you eat all food by the ‘use by’ date - you can use food that is past a 'best before' date but they may not taste as nice.
