it depends on what you cook and what you did to it after you cooked it. if you want to prolong the food's spoilage, then better refrigerate it.
From as soon as you have cooked your meal it begins to break down. With meats and dairy this process is usually quicker than other foods. Your environment plays a big part in your food expiry for example tropical heat will spoil bread kept out of a refrigerator. If you vacuum seal food it will last longer as bacteria will be starved of oxygen to grow. If you put your food in a refrigerator as soon as you have finished serving what you will eat, even when it is hot, the as a rule I wouldn't eat anything after one week. This is up to you, make sure you smell your food for freshness. Hams and other meats may be slimey so touching your cooked food can also give you an indicator. If in doubt than throw it out.
You can't; just use the good common sense that people have been using since they were invented, nose, look, taste. Expiry dates are generally only guides anyway.
If a raw food you have bought is close to expiry date, cook it, that will give it a few more days as long as it is kept in the fridge.
Remember, it isn't a good idea to scrape mould off food and eat the remainder, the 'roots' tend to be hardly visible and stretch a long way into the food.
The fats and sugars in cakes and pastries help preserve the food stuff, the legend being, hot x buns never go off? In rich, fruit cakes, the high fruit, sugar and alcohol content helps them last a long time: the bit of wedding cake saved for the first anniversary. It is still best to keep sweet cakes and pastries in close fitting, better still, airtight containers.
Finally, always protect all food stuffs from the attention of flies.
That answer will vary from food to food and depends on how it is stored. Here is a good web site to help you find some answers:
