Use a digital thermometer to measure the temperature throughout the preparation process and complete the temperature control log.

Following the preparation of the food, you are required to serve and/or display the food you have made.

As you serve and/or display the food you have made, explain to your assessor at least two food hazards that can occur during serving/displaying food and demonstrate how you control them. One of the dishes that you are making will involve the use of single use items. Show your assessor how to correctly use single use items.
