Join us as we welcome writer and food enthusiast Jill Lightner to Browsers in support of her new book from Mountaineers Books, Scraps, Peels and Stems: Recipes and Tips for Rethinking Food Waste at Home. Jill will present, answer questions and sign books.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
What’s the impact of the food you eat? How about the food you waste? You may think those extra broccoli stems can’t change the world, but what if you knew that we each waste more than 18 pounds of food per month? With new ways to use everything from turkey bones and bruised apples to restaurant leftovers, and recipes for Kitchen Sink Muffins, Roasted Cauliflower Leaves, Coconut-Lime Gin Fizz, and more, this accessible and engaging guide will inspire you to re-think what you toss.
Scraps, Peels, and Stems is a comprehensive and accessible guide to reducing food waste in your daily life. Food journalist Jill Lightner shows how to manage your kitchen for less waste through practical strategies, tips, and advice on food purchasing, prep, composting, and storage.
