Disgusted Tarts

There’s nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a smooth custard tart – unless you can hide that little extra in there. I recommend a used Band-Aid to show that your chef does give 100%.

Food Safety Tip

Did you know that blue Band Aids are specifically designed to ensure that they are highly visible if they accidentally fall off? And products like “finger cots” were designed to hold band aids on?

If your first-aid kit doesn’t contain blue Band-Aids then consider upgrading it now:
