Baked Potato Bar

Hi Ellen,

I read through your Taco/Potato Bar page and only want to clarify a couple things. First, with the bake and hold method for potatoes, will the hot cooler actually keep the potatoes hot for up to 6 hours? And with a taco bar, is there any way to keep the taco meat warm for transport, or will it have to be preheated in an oven and then transferred to a chafing dish?

Thank you!

Yes, if you do it exactly as indicated and pack the chests after thoroughly preheating, it will. It is NOT desirable to keep the meat warmish during transport; make ahead, chill and heat on site, then transfer to chafing dish.
