The Zero Waste Cookbook: 100 Recipes for Cooking without Waste (Paperback)
In 2019, I spent a lot of time learning to be more thoughtful than ever about single-use plastics and products with excess packaging of any kind—especially things that I use on the go. In 2020, I’m ready to turn my mindfulness practice toward excess waste that comes from my kitchen. The Zero Waste Cookbook is an incredible (and gorgeous) resource. Use your grapefruit rinds to make a tart citrus curd for pastries! Make coleslaw from broccoli stems and regrow your scallions and fennel from the roots so that you never have to buy more! I love this book because it not only gives tangible ways to reduce waste, but it also encourages me to slow down and take my time. I hope you’ll join me on the journey to a more sustainable year!— Afton Montgomery, Adult Frontlist Buyer
