I have the pleasure of hosting Kate from Turquoise Lemons' No Waste Food Challenge, a food blogging challenge Kate created inspired by the Love Food Hate Waste campaign. It is designed to get us to use up our leftovers and food that might otherwise end up in the bin in a bid to help prevent food waste. Did you know that in the UK about 15 million tonnes of food is thrown away each year with almost 50% of that coming directly from our kitchens!
Kate's a bit busy these days, what with organizing a wedding and all (congratulations Kate!) so I'm keeping things ticking over until she returns to blogging. This month I'm leaving it up to you what you would like to make. Share your recipes using up fruit that's going off, vegetables which have seen better days, that half tub of cream that's been open for two days, things hiding in the deepest depths of your freezer, those nearly empty bags of baking ingredients lurking in the back of the cupboard, whatever you like! Be as creative as you can be. I'm also leaving this challenge open for two months, for the months of August and September. This is because I'm a bit busy myself; I'm working on my final dissertation for a BSc (Hons) Life Sciences with the Open University and I should be concentrating on writing my research paper and not blogging!
The usual rules apply:
1. Please send an e-mail of your challenge entry to tangolikeraindrop (at) hotmail (dot) co (dot) uk by the end of September or add it to the linky below. I find the linky easier to work with as I'm less likely to lose a recipe!
2. If you email, please include the title, recipe and a link to your post. If the recipe is not your own make sure you credit the author.
3. Feel free to republish old posts just make sure you add a link to the current challenge and add the challenge badge (the blue badge at the top of this post).
4. Make sure you email/link up before the end of September!
5. Please also include a link back to this blog post and Kate's No Waste Food Challenge post.
6. Tweet @TangoRaindrop and @turquoiselemons with the tag #NoWasteFoodChallenge and I will retweet all that I see.
Happy cooking! x
