A cookery book featuring winning recipes from residents and restaurants across North London has been produced as a result of a recipe competition to showcase a range of tasty meals and snacks made from leftovers.
The cookbook gives leftovers such as old pasta, stale bread and even old tea bags a new lease of life as they are transformed into a series of starters, mains and desserts by 26 budding chefs from across North London.

The campaign includes roadshows, workshops, online food waste diaries, local advertising and competitions. The aim of this campaign is to reduce around 9,000 tonnes of food waste.
