Chef advises on cooked meals for long distances

Jason Daniels, a chef at Cape Grace, shared with Briefly News the types of meals that are sure to keep a person filled, especially for long-distance drives.

He listed home-cooked meals such as lasagna, cottage pie, beef or chicken stew, pasta, and lentil curry as dishes that will keep the belly smiling for a significant period.

Because the woman's father will be on the road for a while, Jason also explained how long cooked meals can stay out of a fridge:

"Technically, cooked meals can be outside the fridge for two hours at room temperature. Once food reaches between eight and 63 degrees Celsius, it is considered the danger zone, as it allows bacteria to grow. However, it also depends on the room temperature inside and outside."
