Now for my thoughts on the book: I am an experienced cook - no gourmet chef by any stretch but I can make food from scratch that people can/will actually eat. I have great cooking tools, a fabulous oven, bread maker, kitchen aid and so on. What I DON'T have is a grasp on how to maximize my food dollars and quit throwing away so much food. I've gone in spurts with making applesauce out of soft or soon to go bad apples, frozen almost dead bananas for muffins or smoothies and really tried to get past my aversion to leftovers! Nothing sticks and I needed a road map. This book provided me with what I needed - a food preservation compass.
I like that this book is broken up into easy to digest chunks (pun intended). The mix of science, statistics and food tips was just right for me. Nothing was so cumbersome or long-winded that I had to put the book down. I love the Smarter Storage section - I never could figure out which items needed humidity and which ones didn't! Organizing the freezer is one task this household is NOT good at - Dana's tips are a great refresher on how to organize and why we should.
I have a great dream of composting; although it has always seemed "too complicated" and I give up before I get started. Dana's simple approach (for all living styles) gives me hope that I can actually do this!
This book has great tips to achieve what the title suggests Waste Less Food! While every person may not need every section of this book, I do believe this book contains a nugget for everyone, even for those "in the know". And for those just beginning their journey to Wasting Less, Saving more and doing better for our environment - this book is a MUST have.
Dates on food...seriously, it says BEST BY, not EXPIRED!!
Want to know more about that... read about it starting on p.82 Chapter Can I Eat It? and so much more...
A true kitchen companion not to be dismissed.
Great resource on how and how long you can keep different foods, a bunch of tasty recipes, too!
