When I make a large batch of soup I let it cool for a bit on the stove and then in the fridge it goes. Was watching Kitchen Nightmares the other day and when the cooks put a large pot of hot soup in the fridge Ramsay exclaimed, "YOUR GOING TO KILL SOMEONE!"
Apparently this is bad. I get that it will be in the "danger" zone temp wise, but I've done it this way in my home kitchen for years and haven't made anyone sick much less killed someone. What do you do?
