Heating and serving tips:
  • Don't keep food hot for longer than an hour before serving
  • Leave roast potatoes open to the atmosphere after cooking, to retain their crispness.
  • Remember that it is harder to keep certain foods warm. e.g. root vegetable keep their heat well but spinach and cabbage don't.
