food waste
Dan Kluger will demonstrate how to eliminate food waste in the kitchen during his cooking demo at the Zero Waste Food conference.

We’re wrapping up Zero-Waste Week here at Food Republic, but that doesn’t mean we’re done talking about food waste.

The Institute of Culinary Education, in partnership with the New School, will host the Zero Waste Food symposium next weekend in New York City. From Saturday April 28 to Sunday April 29, chefs, thinkers and nonprofit organizers will gather to talk about repurposing food waste, spaces and materials, butchering vegetables, sustainability, cooking sessions and more.

Renowned chef Massimo Bottura gives the keynote address, then experience Dan Kluger leading a demo, Missy Robbins talking about making the most out of a restaurant space and Jehangir Mehta turning scraps into something you want to eat every day. Mehta even gave us a little sneak peek of what he’ll discuss at the symposium on Instagram.
