Cooking With Food Scraps Series #1 – “Interception of the Food Waste Cycle in our own kitchen

Saturday | August 22, 2020 | 11:00 am — 1:30 pm

Food waste is the 3rd biggest contributor to Global Warming on earth! Where and how can we get involved?

After her highly acclaimed “Simple Culinary Delights from Food Scraps” class last year, Stop Waste Environmental Educator, Chef Helga Alessio, will explore the many ways that you can intercept the Food Waste cycle right in your own kitchen.

Join the Zero Waste Kitchen Challenge and learn how to track and reduce your own food waste while preparing and cooking dishes that use ingredients otherwise tossed in the garbage.

At the end of the class students will enjoy the full summer meal they have prepared using the techniques taught in class.

Menu (subject to change):

  • Cauliflower & mushroom casserole
  • Millet Salad with Broccoli in a lemony dressing
  • Vegan Goddess Dressing
  • Poached orange pear with Almond Cream
