Blasta Books #7: Wasted

By Conor Spacey

Blasta Books #7: Wasted is a capsule collection of recipes that have come from identifying some of the most wasted food items in our homes. This book will help you to stop wasting food and turn perfectly good ingredients into delicious dishes. And the key word here is delicious. The book's ulterior motive may be to get us to think differently about ingredients and waste, but the driver for all these plant-based recipes is flavour.

Wasted will change your mindset and reconnect you to real food, from the root to the tip.

  • "Wasted is so engaging, so wise, that you have to pinch yourself to remember that it’s a book about the stuff we all throw away every day. Like the best works of art, it forces you to both look closely and to think carefully. Spacey gives us solutions, and he does so genially and sympathetically: if you feared a sermon from the pulpit, relax. Wasted is like an appointment with your food therapist." – John & Sally McKenna, McKennas Guides
