The Food Network is airing a special called The Big Waste this Sunday (1/8) night and I am really psyched to check it out. We have a HUGE problem in this country when it comes to wasted food. The premise of the show is that two all-star teams comprised of famed chefs Bobby Flay, Michael Symon, Anne Burrell and Alex Guarnaschelli compete with only 48 hours on the clock, to create full-scale menus of the caliber people have come to expect from them, but the catch is that they can only use food that is destined for the landfill!
According to the Food Network:
“The chefs’ hunt takes them from grocery aisles to produce farms, and orchard lines to garbage piles, as they attempt to source enough ingredients to feed a gathering crowd. Bobby and Michael square off against Anne and Alex, as they challenge their views of food waste and how and why it is created.”
While I am guessing the meals will include animal products, I really like the concept of the show and how it will highlight the waste problem in today’s world.
