    I'd bin it. I read recently that the 'smell test' is very unreliable.

    CSIRO had a great article about food safety recently, dispelling a few myths. I'll see if I can try to find it.

    Tried replying but my post disappeared...?
    Anyway, I'd eat it. I will generally keep cooked, refrigerated for up to 3 days max, depending on what it is, obviously. I'm more strict with takeaway foods, those are turfed within 24 hours max.

    .....My DH ate cold leftover potato salad 5 days after Christmas! Even I was worried about that one. I personally would not have, but he was Ok. It had mayo in it, too 😱

    My rule of thumb is three days.. The day it's cooked, the day after and one more.. And only if it has been covered and refrigerated as soon as it's cool enough not to condensate..

    It would be totally fine. I'd eat it for upto 5 days after it was cooked no worries
