Food Safety Guidelines

Welcome to Fleet Street Kitchen‘s Food Safety Guidelines page. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and we want to ensure that your culinary experience is not only delicious but also safe. Please take a moment to review these important food safety guidelines.

1. Handwashing

Proper hand hygiene is critical when handling food:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food.
  • Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your face, hair, or other surfaces while preparing or serving food.

2. Food Storage

Store food items at safe temperatures:

  • Keep perishable foods like meats, dairy, and seafood in the refrigerator at 40°F (4°C) or below.
  • Use a thermometer to check the temperature of your refrigerator and freezer regularly.
  • Store raw meats separately from ready-to-eat foods to prevent cross-contamination.

3. Food Preparation

Prevent cross-contamination and ensure thorough cooking:

  • Use separate cutting boards and utensils for raw meats and vegetables.
  • Cook meats to their recommended internal temperatures (use a food thermometer).
  • Avoid partially cooking food and finishing it later.

4. Leftovers

Handle leftovers with care:

  • Refrigerate leftovers promptly, ideally within two hours of cooking.
  • Use or freeze leftovers within a reasonable time frame to maintain food quality and safety.
