Answer
Shalom, Thank you for your question. (Let me first say that I am unfamiliar with “primavera” – but I assume it is a meat dish that you by mistake added milk cream to). Without knowing all the details, it is hard to answer online, but let’s have a try. If the cream was less than one sixtieth of the sauce, it would be automatically nullified, and you would have nothing to worry about. So, the first thing to do is estimate how much cream was added, and if there was 60 times it’s volume in the sauce. If not, then the food is forbidden. The puts (and stirring spoons) used on the fire need to be koshered. The process of koshering them will depend on what they are made out of – metal, glass, ceramics etc. Each has it’s own laws. As to the dishes used to serve the food – the plates knives and forks etc, - their law is more lenient, but also depends on if the food was placed on them while hot or just warm. Also if the food was a solid or liquid. And what the plates are made of. If you want to get back to us with details as to the above questions, we can try and answer in a clearer fashion. Blessings.
