How to keep safe staying at someone else's house?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We are staying in a cabin for a week. It is fully stocked with food, spices, kitchen supplies, everything you might have in your own kitchen at home. It is only used maybe three months out of the year. I am bringing my own kitchen stuff (skillets, serving spoons, bowls etc) and of course our own food. I am wondering what else I need to do to avoid cross contamination beside not using their toaster or oven. I don't want to be sick on the only vacation we get a year. What are your best tips?

It sounds like you have a good handle on it already. You might want to bring either your own silverware or get disposible and of course don't use any of the provided spices etc. Other than that I would just wipe down the counters before perparing your food and unless the oven is dirty I wouldn't worry about using it as long as your not putting anything on the racks. if the cabin has a grill outside do make sure your food isn't coming incontact with the racks. Have fun and try not to worry you should be fine with the preperations you have made.

Freezer/Butcher paper, lay it out and use it for cooking and prep surface, even go the extra mile and use it for serving on like a table mat or table cloth. It also makes clean up a breeze as you just toss the sheet. 
Foil and parchment paper. great for lining ovens, baking dishes, baking pans, grills with to give you a clean cooking surface.

Bring all your own condiments, spices, etc. I like to carry my own in a chef kit. I recently fell in love with BIG AXE no salt spices and they are gluten free find them on amazon. Flavor god also makes some good all rounders. I tend to bring my own griddle and Nordic ware microwave cook ware when I head out. The nordic ware has everything from grilling plates, bacon cookers, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, and popcorn makers all for the microwave.
