Creative & Practical Ways to Avoid Food Waste
The food we eat is part of our ecological footprint. To make sustainable food choices we have to consider and reduce the health, environmental and social impact of these, with what food we choose but also with what we do with it. In this workshop, you'll learn ways to make the most of the food that you grow or buy. With some know-how and a little planning there are simple ways you can maximise your food and even use what most consider to be food scraps or leftovers by turning them into meals or more.
What we'll cover:
- Menu planning tips - so you don't buy what you don't need.
- Food storage tips - who knew strawberries are best kept in glass?
- Know the difference between ‘use-by’ and ‘best before’ dates.
- What the most common problems foods are in terms of waste and how to reduce yours.
- Learn how to use common leftover ingredients to maximise your meals.
- How to make vinegar with waste or second quality fruit.
