What is "room temperature," in degrees Farenheit? I am referring to cooking ingredients,
and red wine? It seems to me that everyone has a different comfort level, and that "room temperature" will be different in everyone's home.
As far as I know, the phrase "room temperature" always meant around 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm not so sure about that in relation to ingredients and wine and such, as you mentioned, but I hope this helps. :]
Good question and the answer is probably not what you think. Normally people think of room temperature as 70f. When it comes to wine, room temperature is generally 55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, which was probably the average room temperature in the days before central heating. White wine is generally served 5 to 10 degrees cooler.
It is 82 degrees. That is the "room temperature" for cooking ingredients like water, eggs, milk, etc and I believe it mostly apply to baking ingredients.
Well, having spent fifteen years as an HVAC repair man ...I can tell you that folks are generally comfortable anywhere from 68 to 80 degrees F.
Age, season, and finances factor into that, of course :-/
Room temperature for cooking is the ambient temperature of where you are working and can vary according to your comfort level. It simply means that the food at the time of preparation was not just removed from the fridge or oven and has had time to adjust to the surrounding temperatures.
Room temperature for wine is about 55 degrees F. The term is used to refer to the temperature of the wine room or wine cellar. In France, the wine was kept in caves that had a year-round temp of 13C or 55F and this was kept as a base.
Good question! I would presume that room temperature is about 72 degrees F. One additional comment I would make is that it will vary based on proximity to a south-facing window, near the oven or dishwasher, or close to a draft (external door).
70-72 F. It is the comfort level of you body in a singal layer of clothing indoors.
Room temperature is EXACTLY 68 Deg, F. (20 Deg, C). Any other temperature of that ingredient and you can be SURE that your recipe will end up in the Disposal..... Good luck...
