You need to clean as (you) go. I mean don’t… don’t mess plates and clean it afterwards. Let’s say I’ve got to serve these lunchtime customers, and I’ve got here a board, knives and I’m keeping things separated. So let’s say the green boards are for vegetables, so I’m using it for vegetables – I’m not going to mix it with the yellow one which is for the cooked meat. And er as well, our knives, (like) kind of wipe them with the blue cloths – antibacterial – keep the place clean and kind of avoid the cross… cross cross-contamination (I’m sorry) of the bacteria to the food ‘cos it can cause the food poisoning, it can go really far which is not good and er…. yeah, so just try to keep the place really really clean and It’s not just the deli bar, it’s the kitchen and everywhere around… wipe it… ‘cos food poisoning, as I said, a massive issue.
