A Tale of FIFO

I’ve written here on the FIFO principle before; standing for First In, First Out, it’s a core concept to adopt in any kitchen. FIFO is critical to food safety, and the best way to reduce waste in your kitchen.

This weekend, I was cooking at my Sister’s, when… Well, I’ll just let her tell the story – Check it out here.

A tart, sort of...

It looked good though, didn’t it?
