Bishul Akum

If an ill person has a non Jewish worker who cooks for them (and otherwise they would not be able to cook for themselves) and then that person has a guest, and the worker gives them some of the food to take home, may that person eat the food, or must they throw it away? If throw away, what if they also cooked some food that was not in category of bishul akum? Must it all be thrown away? Whenever I am visiting this person, I always try to turn on the fire but don’t always see when she’s cooking. Sometimes I’m there when she’s already cooking. Not sure how to handle these situations and what to do when she insists on sending me home with tempting food.

This is too complicated to answer on this site. Its dependent on multiple factors. Please email me and we’ll setup a time to speak.
