How-to Keep Correct Temperatures

Keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Cooked foods and uncooked foods that require require refrigeration should only be left at room temperature for up to 2 hours and only 1 hour if it is a hot day. Use warming trays, slow cookers and chafing dishes to keep hot foods to at least 140°. Use ice bowls (see page 35) or ice to keep foods cold.
