Waste not : recipes and tips for full-use cooking from America's best chefs / James Beard Foundation ; photography by Keirnan Monaghan and Theo Vamvounakis.
The average American household throws away more than $1,500 worth of food every year. Featuring 100 recipes from chefs such as Rick Bayless, Elizabeth Falkner, Bryant Terry, and Katie Button, Waste Not shows readers how to turn ingredients that often end up in the trash into delicious dishes and exciting takes on tried-and-true recipes. There are no better ambassadors to inspire people to reduce food waste than chefs. Nobody knows more about how to fully utilize every leaf, root, bone, stem, and rind, or has ideas for how to stretch dollars into delicious, satisfying dishes. Here, chefs from around the country share not only recipes for asparagus bottom aioli, squash-seed tahini, and fruit-skin-crusted mahi, but also their suggestions for how to get maximum mileage--and inspiration--from the food you buy. Curated by the James Beard Foundation, America's leading organization for culinary innovation, Waste Not will change what--and how--you eat.

When it comes to food safety and germs, there are as many common questions as there are misconceptions. And yet there has never been a book that clearly examines the science behind these important issues--until now.

Written with candid humor and richly illustrated, this fascinating book will reveal surprising answers to the most frequently debated--and also the weirdest--questions about food and germs, sure to satisfy anyone who has ever wondered: should I really eat that?--Page [4] of cover.
