Temperature Danger Zone

No I am not talking about the temperature today, however, it did seem dangerous! 

Today was my first day of class and it was very exciting to get dressed up in my uniform and head off to school. I did cut myself shaving and I tried to think what the equivalent of that would be for a first grader getting ready for their first day of school. 

In Culinary Foundations we reviewed our knife kits and I was like a kid on Christmas morning! There are so many fun gadgets in there.

In Food Safety and Sanitation we discussed food borne illnesses and the causes of them. So the "Temperature Danger Zone" is the temperature range between cold and hot food that is optimal for the growth of bacteria and is between 41 and 135 degrees F. Cold foods should be kept below this range and hot foods should be kept above it. Did you also know that it only takes 2 people getting sick from eating the same food to be considered an outbreak?
