Dana Gunders, Natural Resources Defense Council, author and return guest!
Leave it to Dana Gunders to do all she does for the planet AND write the Waste Free Kitchen Handbook – a guide to eating well and saving money by wasting less food coming to bookstores near you on September 29th. Even though there seems to be a growing awareness of food waste, many well-intentioned home cooks lack the tools to change their habits. This handbook – packed with engaging checklists, simple recipes, practical strategies, and educational infographics – promises to be the ultimate tool for reducing food waste. Dana provides solutions! From a scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council come these everyday techniques that call for minimal adjustments of habit – from shopping, portioning, and using a refrigerator properly to simple preservation methods including freezing, pickling, and cellaring. From the reviews I read, the book will be a good read and a go-to reference as well as a handy guide chock-full of helpful facts and tips, including 20 “use-it-up” recipes and a substantial directory of common foods. Bring it on Dana – the world needs your wisdom! This show made possible through the generous support of Habitat for Humanity Tucson.
