Waste Not, Want Not

April 29th, 2015

Many North Americans waste 40 percent of the food they purchase. It’s like throwing away a bag full of groceries every week. Besides being a waste of money, this waste contributes to global warming. Cinda Chavich’s Waste Not, Want Not Cookbook (Touchwood $22.95) offers over 140 recipes that will “show you how to shop, cook, and eat with zero waste.” Savvy shopper learns how to interpret “best-before” dates, store food so it lasts longer and turn leftovers into meals you want to eat.  Cinda Chavich of Victoria is a freelance journalist and photographer whose writing has been published in Maclean’s, Canadian Living, the Globe and Mail, Wine Spectator, Wine Access, Canadian Geographic and Chatelaine. Her six cookbooks include The Girl Can’t Cook and The Guy Can’t Cook.
