WATCH DAN BARBER ON THE HISTORY OF FOOD WASTE
Anthony Bourdain’s new food waste documentary Wasted! is released in theatres and on demand on 13 October.
In a new teaser clip from the movie, chef Dan Barber explains how food waste has been used to create some of the most iconic dishes and products in history, such as a Bouillabaisse or Prosciutto di Parma.
“Every cuisine that has lasted generations, they all have dishes that would be called 'wasted,' but are in fact iconic cultural dishes,” says the chef.
Barber is constantly asking us to reexamine our relationship with food waste, both at his own Blue Hill at Stone Barns restaurant in Upstate New York and at his Wasted pop-ups, most recently in London.
The film also features appearances from Massimo Bottura, Mario Batali and Danny Bowien.
