Stop wasting food!

Food is not merely fuel for our bodies, since it also has a strong social significance. We socialize over good food, make memories, celebrate anniversaries, blow candles, take new steps, toast to successes and many other things. Therefore, it is even more surprising that a third of the food we produce never even lands on a plate.

Many topics were explored, and questions answered. How can sustainability be the keyword for more daring and progressive cooking?
