Updated: Feb 18, 2020

Our guest chefs share their knowledge for turning leftover produce into delicious dips, compote, French toast and pickles! Here are a couple of fun facts and recipes we would like to share with you.

Did you know? It is estimated that 70% of the food wasted happen at home. Find more tips and recipes on our blog

MILK Daily waste in British households: 5.8 million glasses of milk Our top tips: Firstly remember to trust your senses (smell it!) and don't always rely solely on milk 'use by' labels.

Milk freezes well, so if you're heading away, freeze the remainder in your ice tray and add cubes to your next brew. Or of course blend it with some leftover fruit for a delicious smoothie.


Daily wast in British households: 24 millions slices

Our Top tips: In stead of leaving all the bread our to go stale and mould, slice it up (if it isn't already) and pop it in the freezer. Every-time you want a slice of toast, just get it out from the freezer and pop it in the toaster!

RECIPE USING MILK AND STALE BREAD: French Toast Recipe to use surplus milk:

Thick slices of stale sourdough bread, soaked in a mixture of 1 beaten egg with ½ cup of milk.

Heat up a frying pan and pop the Toast in there until it crisps up!
