The NSW Food Authority recommends the following tips for outdoor cooking and dining this Father’s Day

  • cook foods to at least 60 degrees Celsius;
  • don’t eat cooked foods that have been left out for more than two hours;
  • if you’re travelling, store uncooked and ready-to-eat foods in separate sealed containers and keep them cold during transport using a chiller bag or esky;
  • don’t eat foods that should be refrigerated if they have been left out for more than two hours;
  • wash and dry hands thoroughly before starting to prepare or eat any food;
  • keep benches, equipment and tableware clean and dry; and
  • use separate plates and utensils for cooking and serving
