This easy-to-use book will show you how to use up fresh and leftover food in very clever and delicious ways! This resourceful and creative guide will also show you ‘how to extend a food’s shelf life, find alternate uses for typically discarded parts, and repair recipes gone wrong. Beyond the kitchen, create your own garden compost and potpourri. Discover hundreds of ideas for achieving sustainable and environmentally friendly processes to streamline your pantry—and balance your budget.’
If you’re living on a budget or just looking for ways to reduce food waste, simply look up any food item in this book and it will show you how it can be used, reused and repurposed. Every household should have a copy of this excellent guide. Five stars.
First, it is organized alphabetically like a reference book, so you can simply look up a food item by letter and find MacLeod’s tips and practical uses for this food. Next, it really is full of hundreds of tips and practical information. There are even sections on how to reheat certain foods and how to use it for potpourri! Finally, I am glad MacLeod put the effort into crafting a book that will help others be environmentally conscious when it comes to the kitchen.
In a nutshell, this is part cookbook, part self-help, part gardening meets sustainability friendly living. Compiled into an easy to navigate, alphabetically ordered list, The Waste-Wise Kitchen will be handy for everyone from professional chefs to those who have trouble boiling water. A lot of it is common sense but clearly there is a need for reminders when you consider how wasteful our society has become. Here MacLeod gives many tips and kitchen hacks for running your kitchen more efficiently and wisely. It's not hard to come to the conclusion that if you can manage your kitchen in this manner then surely you can make the same strides in other areas of your life. Nice job!
