Food Preservation and Food Safety


Food Preservation and Food Safety Chef Peter Reinhart is back for a new twist on our monthly food show. Chances are you have a fully cooked meal sealed in a pouch in your lunchbox, cupboard or freezer that will last for months, if not years, and still be edible when you heat it up. We'll explore the modern preservation of food. What chemicals and processes preserve meals for so long and do these meals retain true freshness and nutrition? We'll also hear from experts on canning, drying, freezing and curing foods in a more natural way. Guests Peter Reinhart - Chef-on-Assignment, Johnson and Wales University Chef Joe Bonaparte - Academic Director of Culinary Arts at Art Institute of Charlotte Linda Minges - Family and Consumer Education Extension Agent, Gaston County Dr. Fletcher Arritt - Asst. Prof., Food Science Poultry and Food Processing Technology, NC Cooperative Extension Service Click here to add and read comments
