Health And Safety In The Kitchen! Trivia Quiz - Quiz

You might fancy yourself a wizard in the kitchen just because you can chop some onions, grill some chicken and manage not to overcook your rice, but being a good chef is about much more than the delicious food you can make.

Take this health and safety in the kitchen trivia quiz and see if you might need to step up your kitchen rules.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Using the same knife for meat and vegetables can cause cross-contamination.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using the same knife for both meat and vegetables can cause cross-contamination because raw meat can contain harmful bacteria that can contaminate the knife. If the same knife is then used to cut vegetables without proper cleaning, the bacteria from the meat can transfer to the vegetables, potentially causing foodborne illnesses. It is important to use separate knives or thoroughly clean and sanitize the knife between different types of food to prevent cross-contamination.

    Bacteria can spread from your clothes onto your food.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bacteria can spread from your clothes onto your food because clothes can come into contact with various surfaces that may harbor bacteria, such as countertops, doorknobs, or even other people's hands. When these contaminated clothes come into contact with food, the bacteria can transfer onto the food, potentially causing foodborne illnesses if consumed. Therefore, it is important to practice good hygiene, such as washing hands and changing clothes regularly, to prevent the spread of bacteria onto food.

  • 3. 

    When you wash your hands you don't need to check that your nails are clean.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that checking the cleanliness of nails is unnecessary when washing hands. However, this is not true as proper hand hygiene includes cleaning under the nails, as dirt and bacteria can accumulate there. Therefore, it is important to check and ensure that nails are clean while washing hands.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    You chop meat on a green chopping board.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The color of the chopping board does not determine its suitability for chopping meat. The color of the board is purely aesthetic and has no impact on its functionality. The important factor to consider when chopping meat is the cleanliness and hygiene of the board, not its color. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You chop up your vegetables separately to your meat.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Chopping up vegetables separately from meat is a good practice to prevent cross-contamination. Raw meat can contain harmful bacteria that can spread to vegetables if they are chopped on the same cutting board or with the same knife. By chopping them separately, you minimize the risk of bacteria transfer and maintain food safety. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When your mince is pink it is cooked.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect. When your mince is pink, it is not fully cooked. Mince, which refers to ground meat, should be cooked until it reaches a safe internal temperature to kill any harmful bacteria present. Ground meat should be cooked until it is no longer pink and has reached an internal temperature of 160°F (71°C) to ensure it is fully cooked and safe to consume. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You need to make sure that your handles are turned inwards so that you do not knock them off the hob.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To avoid accidentally hitting or knocking off the hob, it is important to turn the handles inwards. This prevents any potential accidents or damage to the hob. By keeping the handles facing towards the center, you create a safer cooking environment and reduce the risk of any mishaps occurring. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    You leave your anti-bacterial spray for 30 seconds so that it kills any germs on the surfaces.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Leaving the anti-bacterial spray on surfaces for 30 seconds allows it enough time to effectively kill any germs present. This is because most anti-bacterial sprays require a certain amount of contact time in order to be fully effective. By leaving it for 30 seconds, you ensure that the spray has enough time to do its job and eliminate any potential germs on the surfaces.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    To wash up you need to use it.

    • A.

      Washing up liquid and hot water.

    • B.

      Washing up liquid and cold water

    • C.

      Hot water

    Correct Answer
    A. Washing up liquid and hot water.
    Explanation
    To effectively wash up, you need to use washing up liquid to remove grease and dirt from the dishes. Hot water helps to dissolve the grease and grime more effectively, making it easier to clean the dishes. Cold water alone may not be as effective in removing grease and dirt. Therefore, the best combination for washing up is using washing up liquid with hot water.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    You don't need to dry your equipment completely before washing up.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is important to dry your equipment completely before washing up. This is because washing up with wet equipment can lead to the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms. Drying the equipment helps to prevent the growth of these harmful organisms and ensures that the equipment is clean and safe to use.
