Eco-chef, restaurant owner and author Tom Hunt was teamed up with Volkswagen and Fareshare by MN2S to help reduce food waste.
Eco-chef Tom Hunt is committed to cooking healthy, nutritious food with all-natural ingredients. This made him the perfect match for Volkswagen’s California Cooking Challenge, in which he created a series of delicious, zero-waste recipes all prepared in the kitchen of a Volkswagen California. Tom rose to the challenge and demonstrated some excellent zero food waste hacks, rustling up two gorgeous recipes taken from his book on sustainable cooking, Eating for Pleasure, People and Planet. Tom demonstrated how simple sustainable cooking can be by using the two hobs, fridge and running tap found in the Volkswagen’s California commercial vehicle.
“Sustainable and zero-waste waste cooking is extremely important to me. I love creating amazing recipes that are locally-sourced, seasonal and create as little waste as possible so this challenge was the perfect opportunity for me. I’m delighted I was able to share some of my popular hacks with FareShare and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.”Tom Hunt
James Persad, Head of Marketing and Communications at FareShare commented: “Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of good food is unnecessarily wasted in the UK every year and in light of the pandemic we are even more determined than ever to raise awareness and educate the food industry and public about the easy ways to avoid excess food waste, whether it’s using simpler ingredients or utilising store-cupboard staples. The partnership with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles and Tom shows just how easy it is to cook delicious meals that are affordable and reduce food waste without the need for loads of equipment.”
