This research was conducted to demonstrate food safety practices in three-, four-, and five-star hotel kitchens and to examine the relationship between star ratings and food safety practices. The study was carried out in three, four and five star hotels in the provinces of Adana and Mersin. A total of 25 hotels, 5 five star, 13 four star, 7 three star, which were included in the survey, were interviewed face to face with kitchen chefs. 21 of the hotels are independent, 2 are national and 2 are international. According to the research done, 5-star hotel enterprises all provide their employees with hygiene education.
