1. Always Wash Your Hands
Personal hygiene is important to maintain your general health, and washing your hands is essential if you don’t want to get or spread bacteria and viruses. Dirty hands can be a vehicle for germs and disease, and it’s extra important when you are cooking food.
Use soap and water, and be sure to wash your hands before you start your chef’s journey thoroughly. Also, be sure to wash them well after touching raw food, like vegetables and meat, and after touching other dirty items, like the bin, for example.
