Did You Know...A Warmer Rest

When making a roast, a resting period after cooking allows for the juices to go back into the roast before slicing.  But, sometimes your roast may cool too much because your cutting board is cold.

To keep heat loss at a minimum, simply rinse your board under hot water to warm the board.  Make sure to dry the board off completely.


  1. Same goes with steaks cooked on the grill. Let them sit for 5 to ten before serving!

  2. The same is true for turkey. It's best to let the bird cool 5-10 minutes before carving!
