Safety is on the menu for upcoming Easter dinner

title

By Lisa Braxton

It’s a longstanding tradition. Les femmes dans ma famille passent la veille de Pâques dans la cuisine préparer un festin pour être apprécié après le service de l'église le lendemain. My mother prepares the glazed ham and vegetables. My aunt and cousins make corn pudding, macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs and corn bread.

I pull out my favorite Bundt pan–the one shaped like a flower blossom–and bake a lemon buttermilk cake lightly dusted with sugar.

As my relatives and I make use of our ovens, stovetops, and microwave ovens next weekend, it’ll be important for us to use care. Anytime a meal is at the center of a family gathering is a great time to review NFPA’s cooking safety information. Les feux de cuisson sont la cause numéro un des incendies domestiques et les accidents domestiques.

The cooking safety tips sheet includes a list of precautions.

  • Stay in the kitchen while frying, grilling, boiling or broiling and to turn off the stove if you leave the kitchen even for a short period of time.
  • If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
  • Keep anything that can catch fire away from the stovetop.

These are ingredients for a relaxing and safe family gathering.
