Heat of itself does not spoil food. What spoil the food is the growth of bacteria in the food.At low temperatures (in a fridge) these bacteria only grow slowly but when the food warms up to room temperature the bacteria grow faster and the food will spoil. The reason for this is that for every 10oC rise in temperature the rate of chemical reactions (ie the metabolic rate of the bacteria) doubles. Obviously above a certain temperature (boiling point) the heat is so much that the bacteria are killed off.
