It all depends on how the State Health Codes, in each respective state, are written. Most State codes are written for businesses selling/giving food to the general public. Here in KS the scenario you present would not be governed by the KS Food Code since it is between two individuals. But give them time and I guarantee you that the powers that be will attempt to regulate that as well.
Now if my KS "business" were to want to cook it's own hams and give them as gifts to it's employees then guess what. It is a business giving away prepared potentially hazardous food to the public. KS State code now applies.
