Is Your Kitchen Health Department Approved?

Kitchen query

If you want to incite chaos in a restaurant kitchen just say two words –  Health Department.  Towels fly and tensions rise when an inspector flashes his or her badge.  An article in yesterday’s New York Times got me thinking – would my own kitchen pass should the dreaded health inspector walk in?  Are my towels in sanitation fluid?  No.  Do my cutting boards have nicks?  Yes.  Is my refrigerator cold enough?  Errrr….I think so.
