The culinary crew at Kings Creek Country Club in Rehoboth Beach, Del. now sanitizes all worktops and cutting boards every hour; a pre-programmed timer alerts the team to this task.
Keeping kitchens sanitized during the COVID pandemic has called for extra measures to ensure complete safety. At Kings Creek Country Club in Rehoboth Beach, Del., the culinary crew now sanitizes all worktops and cutting boards every hour; a pre-programmed timer alerts the team to this task.
Kings Creek also takes cleanliness a step further during food deliveries. All items are removed from their cardboard boxes before being placed into coolers and dry storage. “Some of our members have told us they have only dined at our club throughout the pandemic, because they feel safer here and trust our processes,” says General Manager Don Byerly.
At Eagle Creek Golf & Country Club in Naples, Fla., Mondays are dedicated to deep-cleaning the entire kitchen. On a regular basis, Executive Chef Chuck Mahoney uses a peroxide-based, eco-friendly cleaning solution. “Because we are not currently using the banquet room, our staff has all of their meals there,” Mahoney adds.
Having room to social-distance in the kitchen is another advantage. Sailfish Point on Hutchinson Island, Fla., is able to space out its staff, thanks to the additional square footage that its recent renovation has afforded.
