Nancy Birtwhistle recently opened a pop-up restaurant that serves gourmet dishes made out of stale bread. Current research shows that nearly 24 million slices of bread are thrown out in the UK each day. In fact, many people admit to having thrown away a loaf of bread before even opening it.
Birtwhistle's new restaurant is part of the Love Food Hate Waste’s 'Use Your Loaf campaign.' The innovative campaign shows consumers that leftover loaves can be put to good use by serving dishes made out of stale bread. Some of her bread-based creations include a salad with black olive croutons, moussaka with a tasty breadcrumb topping and a summer terrine pudding.
The pop-up restaurant provides a unique way for consumers to learn how to use leftovers to make delicious new dishes.
