Livestream: “Waste-Not” Cooking Demonstration

October 15, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT


Each year, up to 40% of food produced in the United States goes uneaten while over ten percent of Americans are food insecure. Locally, organics are the largest source of landfill content in Nashville. When it comes to cooking, a little creativity can prevent a lot of waste—thereby saving money, mitigating hunger, and protecting the environment. On October 15, the James Beard Foundation and the Nashville Food Waste Initiative will host a “waste-not” cooking demonstration in partnership with Mayor Cooper’s Food Saver Challenge.

This demo will feature Nashville chef Julia Sullivan of Henrietta Red preparing delicious dishes using ingredients typically thought of as food scraps or waste. The event, hosted at Vanderbilt University, will include opening remarks and a 30-minute demonstration. Mayor John Cooper and Vanderbilt Chancellor Daniel Diermeier will also speak.

By highlighting innovative ways to incorporate food scraps into restaurant-quality cooking, this event is intended to raise awareness of the problem of food waste—and its many creative solutions as well.

Recipe cards will be shared with registered livestream attendees in advance of the event. We hope you’ll join us!
