A cookbook review & giveaway worth £14.95
Jamie Oliver has stated that up to 50% of our household food will get thrown away every week, untouched. In a world where we have more food choices at our fingertips than ever before, the amount we throw away is at an all-time high. Are we really being as clever in the kitchen as we could be?
Get the most out of your food, in the most delicious way possible, so that everything you make is just Too Good To Waste.
From cheese rinds to broccoli stalks, eggs whites to sour milk – no food will go unappreciated or unused in this wonderfully humorous and quirky guide to creating delicious feasts from practically nothing. With the world finally waking up to the importance of waste reduction, this is a timely book that takes on the challenge of reducing food waste in a fun and fresh way.
Victoria doesn’t preach to you – she’s no saint herself – but she will gently guide you into creating something wonderful out of what you would ordinarily throw away. With a bit of creative thinking, you can eat up practically everything and enjoy a much more exciting meal because of it.
Victoria’s recipes are where tradition meets innovation and absolutely nothing escapes attention. Bones, for example, that would usually make stock, are instead transformed into Bone Marrow Toffee. The forgotten bags of wilted watercress, normally bound straight for the bin, can be stewed into wonderful Wonton soup. And leftover bacon fat from your last fry up can make delicious mayonnaise!
This book isn’t just about saving money – although that is a welcome side effect. It’s about rethinking what we throw away, and why. By taking this waste-free approach, you will taste some of the most inventive recipes that highlight a whole new way to think about your meals. Get the most out of every item in your shopping trolley with this playful new guide to revolutionise your kitchen.
I personally detest food waste in the home and I love the challenge of using up ingredients which might otherwise have gone to waste, so I was delighted at the opportunity to receive a review copy of this book prior to publication. It’s absolutely packed full of inspiring and easy to make recipes using ingredients we commonly find ourselves leftover with. There are no exceptionally fancy ingredients that we can’t source in our own local supermarket.
The recipes themselves are ones that I’m sure even my fussy family would even enjoy!
