A&C Black, Jun 18, 2012 - Cooking - 256 pages
In the UK we throw away 6.7 million tonnes of food a year - that's a third of all the food we buy, and a fifth of our total domestic waste. And about half of it could be eaten.
Kate Colquhoun shows how to make your food go much, much further than you thought possible. On her mission to use up leftovers, wrinkly fruit and past-it veg, she includes modern, tasty recipes for:
Bakes
Casseroles
Chutneys
Crumbles
Curries
Fishcakes
Gratins
Marinades
Meatballs
Milkshakes
Pies Soups
Stews
Stir-fries
And more!
