SBS Food – 17 SEP 2019

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]You may love to cook food at home. But each night, as you’re carefully chopping, dicing and slicing ingredients, consider how much valued food you’re actually throwing away.

According to Foodwise, Australian households spend up to $1,000 a year on the food that we just throw out.

Yet the pre-loved food scraps that end up in your garbage – stems, leaves, overripe fruit, stale bread – can actually be used to add flavour and bulk to a host of meals. The trick is to know how to cook them.

“Cooking with food that is wasted or discarded is all about looking at what you have, deciding what can be delicious and how ingredients can work together,” says Sydney chef from Fred’s, Georgia Lahiff, who also leads Hidden Harvest’s Wasted Wednesdays kitchen.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][button size=”large” style=”white” target=”_self” hover_type=”enlarge” text_align=”left” custom_class=”read more” text=”Read More” link=”https://www.sbs.com.au/food/article/2019/09/17/beginners-guide-cooking-food-scraps?fbclid=IwAR0U4DxQJ6MO–OOr1NUA8N-bjYGTloSNbzdzFVZ3w2SS-ymBXXJovz18y4″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”15862″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=”element_from_bottom” transition_delay=”0.5″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=”” css=”.vc_custom_1583819156476{padding-right: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;}”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]

Reducing Food Waste at Home

Stanwell Park Eco Centre – 12 AUG 2020

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

I don’t think I’m the only person with bad habits when it comes to food waste; I arrive at the supermarket, having forgotten my shopping list (again) and end up buying more than I planned. It’s not until the end of the week when I’m cleaning out the fridge and find the bag of spoiled nectarines that were out of sight, behind the yoghurt.

Food waste is something that most people don’t think about on a day to day basis, but in terms of reducing individual environmental footprint, minimising food waste is something within our control that can make a big impact… read more[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=”” css=”.vc_custom_1583731860065{padding-right: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
