Award-winning County Down chef Danny Millar is supporting the Department of the Environment’s ‘Love Food, Hate Waste’ campaign which kicked off during the European Week for Waste Reduction, joining leading food industry professionals across Europe who are pledging their support to waste less food.
Danny, whose County Down restaurants Balloo House, The Parson’s Nose and Lisbarnett House are included in all the leading food guides, is providing recipes, hints and tips to encourage the use of leftover food.
He regularly appears on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen and believes this is an excellent initiative which encourages people to be creative.
Danny said: “Wasting food costs the average household £480 a year, rising to £680 for a family with children. Families can save up to £50 a month by following simple guidelines and doing practical everyday things.
“The benefits of using leftovers, food storage, controlling portion sizes and sourcing local ingredients can make a huge difference on family budgets and the environment and can really support the local economy.”
