Make food waste a thing of the past with clever cooking techniques – Sam Thaiday & Celebrity chef Dominique Rizzo set out on a mission to bust the fact that food waste costs the average household about $2200 to $3800 per year.
At the Brisbane City Council Green Heart Fair, Chef Dominique Rizzo and NRL legend Sam Thaiday shared their tips on how to turn what is already in the fridge into creative meals, how to reduce your food waste and how to save time and money creating delicious dishes at home.
That’s good for your budget and good for the environment.
Living sustainably is all about reducing waste, recycling, reusing and being kind to the planet.
Getting into action on stage at the Green Heart Fair, Dominique and Sam chose the ingredients for the dishes that they were cooking from food leftovers that usually were tossed out in the garbage bin.
Together, they demonstrated how to cook a delicious menu of dishes starting with
Corn Soup with Avocado Salsa,
Vegetable San Choy Bow,
Sweet Potato Pizza,
Bacon and Vegetable Strudel.
There were no sad lonely vegetables in the kitchen after this cook-off.
