Visit our new recipe hub

June 8, 2023

During Food Waste Action week in March, Leicestershire county Council challenged residents to submit recipes designed to make good use of some of the most commonly wasted foods. Creative cooks were competing for the chance to have their culinary creations featured in an online recipe book designed to help people make the most of the foods available to them.  

Thanks to everyone who submitted recipes! These were tried and tested by two teams of volunteers from Leicestershire community kitchens in May. Recipes were scored based on their potential to help other people make use of food that would otherwise go to waste, the cost of the ingredients, the ease of following the recipe, and the taste of the resulting dishes.

We’re proud to announce that the best recipes, as chosen by our testers, are now available to view on our new Recipe Hub pages.

Congratulations to everyone featured.
