Its history sheds light on the very origins of human settlement, and its variety and traditions reflect unique social, cultural, and environmental influences.

If you also have an oven you can roast certain meats and vegetables. In an oven, food is surrounded by hot air that gradually cooks from all sides, so roasting a whole chicken or a leg of lamb takes time. After being cooked, roast meat is carved into pieces before being served, often together with roast potatoes, carrots and onions. A meal like this is sometimes called a “Sunday roast” as it was traditionally cooked every Sunday in countries like England and Australia.

It’s great to have leftovers that can be used for a quick and easy lunch or dinner the next day.

Freezing leftovers can also ensure you have a home-cooked meal on hand whenever you don’t feel like cooking.

Cold food will need to be quickly and thoroughly heated at the event until it is steaming hot and then kept hot until it is served. It is best to re-heat the food to a temperature of 70°C and hold the food at this temperature for at least two minutes. Use your thermometer to check that all of the food reaches at least this temperature. You will need to use your thermometer to check that the cooked food is being cooled within the 6-hour time limit. Reheat food until it is steaming hot – above 75 °C or, preferably, boiling.
