Notts Sustainable Cookery Book


In winter 2012, Veolia, Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors, asked Nottinghamshire residents to share their top tips for using up leftovers and their favourite recipes for making the most of seasonal ingredients to put together in a new guide.

The idea for ‘Nottinghamshire’s sustainable cookery book’ was born out of conversations during the autumn Love Food Hate Waste roadshows. After each demonstration that showed residents how to avoid wasting food, many people were keen to share their own good ideas.

Following the 2012 success of the Nottinghamshire Love Food Hate Waste roadshow tour, Veolia, (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors) have compiled a new Nottinghamshire sustainable cookery book.

Many of the recipes and hints & tips were first suggested by residents attending the various Love Food Hate Waste events throughout the county. The recipes will help Notts families cut down on food waste and save up to £680 each year by following the Love Food Hate Waste tips and advice.

Victoria Moore, Communications Officer for Veolia said: “’Love your Leftovers’ features a range of fun, inspiring and easy to follow recipes that will help reduce food waste in the home. From Spicy Parsnip Soup created at Rhubarb Farm to Baked Bramley apple with spiced custard and apple granita from chef & restaurateur Sat Bains, the cook book has something for everyone.”
