Whether to bring them to a picnic, to eat outside, or to serve on a buffet, dishes containing cream or other dairy products, eggs, mayonnaise, meat, fish, or poultry must be kept no longer than 2 hours at room temperature. This standing time is even shorter when food is exposed the hot summer days. Do not forget to place an ice pack in your picnic basket.
