behind the scenes look at holiday produciton at cottage catering

Video is pre Covid19 and gloves were not always used. Gloves were not always used in pre kill zone prep (before cooking) . Gloves were used, even back then for post kill zone or post cooking because you don't want to pass any bacteria to ready to eat food that will not be exposed to the high cooking temperatures. We do use gloves & mask now in all ares of production.
