September 11, at 7:30pm, Chef Alison Mountford will be at Recess to help us learn how to save time, money and the Planet by cooking without waste.
In the United States we waste 40% of the food we produce and the largest amount of waste comes from our own homes! That means, we’re buying food to just throw it away. Not only is this a waste of money, food in the landfill is a top driver of methane emissions and climate change. Even if you compost, the water, labor, gas, oil, and plastics used to produce it are wasted.
Chef Alison Mountford is a San Francisco based Chef and mom of two, who has been catering and cooking for families, celebrities, and businesses for 15 years. Her newest initiative is Ends+Stems a meal planning app that’s aimed at making your life easier while reducing food waste in one step.
In this class, she’ll share the secrets of meal planning, kitchen inventory, and how to get easy weeknight meals on the table. We’ll even dip into tips and tricks for setting up healthy eating and cooking habits for your kids.
We’ll be making 3 dishes with the produce stars of the fall and Back to School Season - apples.
We’ll make apple cider vinegar from scraps, use the fruit in a cravable entree salad, and use the vinegar to make a marinade and dressing.
All participants will receive a $15 CREDIT to use with Ends + Stems!
