Stop throwing away your food scraps and start enjoying them on your table! A collection of 80 surprising, creative, delicious recipes for anyone who wants to cook smart, sustainable, and impressive meals out of unused bits of produce, cheese rinds, stale bread, and other oft-discarded foods. Written by Food52 contributing writer and editor Lindsay-Jean Hard, Cooking from Scraps will teach the basics behind transforming "trash" into treasure. Recipes will reveal how to repurpose unused parts of produce and pantry items—from bones and brine to pits and peels. Readers will find that, when armed with this knowledge, even a simple pot of boiled potatoes can turn into an exciting discovery. (Hint: It’s all in the potato water, which can be put to good use in breads and baked goods.) Includes extra tips and techniques, including how to maximize the shelf life of produce, and foolproof and flexible "Clean Out the Crisper" recipes that will teach readers how to salvage produce that's past its prime.
