Thanksgiving is a few days away. It might be good to review my safety tips from last year’s blog.
Cheers! As I said last year: "So, wash you vegetables well before you cook them and/or before you serve them raw. Me, I go right to red wine (no scientific basis for it). Foods I avoid – unpasteurized juices and milk, sprouts, bagged, pre-washed produce of any kind, raw shellfish and other raw meats or cheeses. Everything else I wash, wash and wash, if it is produce, and I cook all meat products a bit more that the directions above. Also, be careful about cross-contamination between raw uncooked or unwashed foods and counter-tops, utensils and other ready to eat foods. And, WASH YOUR HANDS. Happy Holidays."
I have been asked a lot what I do eat given my job. I used to say (tongue in cheek), "pizza and scotch" – now pizza isn’t even safe.
