Brass Trays For Serving??

  • 1

Is it safe to serve room temp food on brass trays? Some of the dishes will contain lemon juice or vinegar while others will have mayo/aioli or olive oil. Some of the dishes are:

A. Salumi platter with a sprinkling of olive oil and some parsley.
B. Tomato and mozzarella platter with olive oil dressing or pesto dressing.
C. Artichoke hearts with lemon juice and olive oil.
D. Cannelini bean, tuna and tomato salad with vinegar and oil.

Thank you for your help.

  1. Things could end up with an off flavor. I would put the food in clear glass shallow dishes on the trays. I'd do that with any metal tray.
