The aim of the day is to combine the theory of food safety with the practical skills of cooking lunch in the outdoors developing good practice guidelines in hopefully a fun, interactive manner. An ‘Outline of the programme’ will include:
- Importance of Food Safety in the woods incorporating HACCP
- Microbes – Where are they “lurking”?
- Illnesses linked to food and the outdoors
- Hygiene Control – Temperature control, Storage, Handling, Preparation, Cooking, Equipment…
- Personal Hygiene
- Food Safety Control – planning a HACCP relevant to your practice.
After successful completion candidates will receive a certificate from the CIEH and a ‘Blake Training’ certificate, personalising the additional outdoor food safety topics covered.
A multiple – choice test will conclude at the end of the course.
