A must-see event at London Food Month is the screening of WASTED! The Story of Food Waste. This feature-length documentary, told through the eyes of top chefs such as Anthony Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura and Danny Bowien, will show audiences how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps and rejects into incredible dishes that feed more people and create a more sustainable food system. The film also features several food waste reduction stories from all over the world, including waste-fed pigs in Japan, a disposal programme that has reduced household food waste by 30 per cent in South Korea, and a garden education curriculum in New Orleans.
You can see an exclusive London Food Month screening on Friday 23 June at the Curzon Chelsea. The screening is from 7pm to 8.30pm, followed by the Q&A from 8.30pm to 9pm with Anna Chai, Emmy Award-winning director and producer; Justin Byam Shaw, chairman of The Felix Project; Patrick Drake, Hello Fresh founder and CEO; Justin Horne, chef founder at Tiny Leaf, organic zero waste restaurant; and Rob Wilson , chief toaster at Toast Ale, brewed with surplus fresh bread that would otherwise be wasted.
