The authors of "The Food Safety Book" wrote a book that provides a real public service, because as they say in their subtitle: "What You Don't Know Could Kill You!" The book impressed our team to the extent that we are using it as a basis of a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program for nutrition professionals.

The book covers how to choose food, how long you can store food, how to store food etc. A necessary item for every kitchen.
This is a wonderful reference book for those who are away from home for the first time. Heck even I am using this as a reference book and I am a stay at home mom who has been cooking for a family of six. (2 adults 4 pickie eating kids)
The other day I was looking at the package of hot dog sitting in the frig unopened and I was wondering how long can they be like that? Will they go bad if I don't open them? If they are opened how long to I have before they go bad? I realized I had no idea. All I knew was that hot dogs needed to boil or be cooked to 165 degrees before eating.
I grabbed the book and quickly looked it up and found what I was looking for. I found what I had been questioning about lunch meats as well. I will be better able to prepare family lunches and dinners know what is still good and what has gone bad. It will save us lots of money because I don't be throwing away as much food thinking it has gone bad.
No saying my kids won't still wait food because they will but I don't.
I plan on giving this book away to all my friends who kids are graduating from college, new parents and newlyweds.
I am so happy I was able to review this awesome reference guide to food prep, keeping my kitchen clean and knowing if my kids get sick it wasn't my kitchen for food fault if I follow this guide.
