If you work in hospitality and catering, you will most likely be aware of the pressure of Christmas demand. The need for food products to be pushed out faster, recipes made richer and embellishment added, can all come into play. Although it can seem stressful on the surface: the prospect of big business and a busy Christmas atmosphere deserves to be celebrated!
An important way you can maximise your appreciation of Christmas in the kitchen is to keep things clean and tidy. The need for increased output can result in more mess, but with today’s importance in health and safety standards, it is imperative that conditions do not falter. After all, good cleanliness will keep products looking their best. So whether it is a kitchen making meals, or cooking up cakes and winter bakes.
Why not consider
- A festive shine – wipe down your workstation at least every hour of use, if being used continuously.
- A deep clean – if the kitchen area is exposed to flour and other ‘dusty’ items such as icing sugar, it can quickly become a hazard and unhygienic. An important way to remove even the smallest grains is to use a good rubber water hose for a full spray-down of the workstation area.
- Be aware of temperatures – you may assume that because it’s winter, overheating may not be an issue. However, commercial kitchens are often at their busiest time, so the heat can seem increased! That’s why it’s essential to take steps to store food correctly in set areas, so it is not spoiled by pressurised conditions.The Hosemaster offers the best hosing equipment to wash down your commercial kitchen, as well as many other useful plumbing and mechanical equipment should you need it in the run up to Christmas.
