Everyone’s doing their bit to cut down on waste lately.
But if you want some tried and tested ways to reuse and recycle, apparently your best bet is to study your ancestors.
Back when food was a precious commodity, every morsel was consumed and there was a recipe or a trick to turn the cheapest of cuts and the most knobbly vegetables into a tasty, frugal meal.
Food historian Regina Sexton will be explaining how previous generations were far ahead of their time when it comes to preventing food waste at a fascinating talk at Nano Nagle Place on Saturday, August 24th, 2019.
The writer, broadcaster and cook, who has been researching and publishing in the area of Irish food and culinary history since 1993, will present ‘Everything But the Oink’ at 2pm at the Douglas Street venue.
Organised as part of the Heritage Week programme, the talk is free to attend and no registration is required.
