Leftover Pie: 101 Ways to Reduce Your Food Waste (Paperback)
In a world where a billion people go to bed hungry, how is it ok to waste a third of the food we produce?
Leftover Pie helps people understand why food waste is such an important issue. It shows we have reached a point in the history of food production where we need to rethink our path. To avoid the serious environmental problems of soil depletion, loss of biodiversity and climate change we have to make some changes.
Leftover Pie shows that many people are already thinking about doing things a bit differently. While still creating and sharing wonderful meals they are really making the most of their food and making sure that they are getting best value from it, including gaining value from the food that might be overlooked as waste.
