Food waste isn't just about those leftover stems and scraps on the cutting board at dinner time—restaurants and food businesses are constantly trying to to avoid throwing away ingredients or prepared dishes to prevent damage to their bottom lines. For Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams founder Jeni Britton Bauer, a big component of her company's fight against food waste is proper food safety. Watch the video above to see how a listeria scare led her to rethink her food safety plan, and to be extra vigilant when it comes to the health of her customers, and, in turn, her business.
The James Beard Foundation's new cookbook, Waste Not: How to Get the Most from Your Food, offers up a host of delicious solutions to the pressing problem of food waste. Featuring 100 recipes from alumni of our Chefs Boot Camp for Policy and Change, Waste Not will teach you how to turn every root, bone, rind, and stem into an irresistible dish.
