Be inspired by unique recipes using your leftover food for a more sustainable future London
2 January 2018
Taste not waste
13 & 14 January
The Museum of London have partnered with Hubbub and Pop Brixton to help reduce Londoners’ food waste as part of the museum’s City Now City Future season.
Working with Michelin star chef Tom Aikens, celebrated eco-chef Tom Hunt, independent restaurants based at Pop Brixton and talented individuals from across London, the museum, in partnership with Hubbub, have developed 6 recipes which use wasted or leftover food to create delicious meals for all to enjoy. Each recipe has been designed to make the most of the food you have, either by using an unusual part of the vegetable, preserving or pickling food, creatively incorporating leftovers or using a surplus of a particular ingredient.
On 13 & 14 January the campaign will launch with a series of workshops at Pop Brixton to introduce these recipes and give an insight into what can be done with your food waste. Visitors will have the opportunity to try delicious recipes from Smoke & Salt and Don Luigi and get some tasty inspiration for how to use your leftovers.
Recipes that have been created include:
● Tom Aikens’ turkey, sausage and bacon pie. Tom’s Kitchen specialises in serving British comfort food, and it doesn’t get much better than a pie to use up those Christmas leftovers.
● Tom Hunt’s carrot and fennel top pesto. Tom Hunt is an acclaimed eco-chef, and author of The Natural Cook. He founded the Forgotten Feast, a campaign working on projects throughout the UK to revive our cooking heritage and help reduce food waste, and Poco an award winning restaurant in Bristol.
● Urvashi Roe’s bloody beetroot gnocchi. Urvashi is a former Great British Bake Off contestant and was inspired by her glut of beetroots to create this recipe.
● Aaron Webster’s crispy potatoes, ox heart, chimichurri and gorgonzola. Aaron is one half of Smoke & Salt at Pop Brixton and has a penchant for offal!
● Don Luigi’s conserved aubergine. Don Luigi is a food stall at Pop Brixton that fuses street food with delicious dishes that originate from Italy.
● Nicole Freeman’s luscious lemon and mashed potato cakes. Nicole is a Barnett-based cookery teacher and likes to make food fun and challenge children to try new recipes.
● Nureen Glaves’s banana nice cream dream. Nureen is a passionate foodie and innovative chef who was recently diagnosed with a gluten and diary intolerance. Her recipe is a great alternative for those who have similar allergies.
Food sustainability is one of the many topics explored in City Now City Future, a season of displays and events exploring urban life in London at the Museum of London.
