Pack your bags - wastED is crossing the pond and coming to London! From 24th February until 2nd April, 2017, wastED London will be taking over Selfridges London's iconic rooftop. Drawing inspiration from the UK's already-vibrant food waste movement, the pop-up will showcase ingredients-in-the-rough from local producers and purveyors across the food industry, and even riff on a few British classics (bubble and squeak, anyone?).
No wastED experience is complete without ingenious guests behind the stove. Chefs from throughout UK and Europe will be joining the team to provide daily menu specials. The cheeky Iain Griffiths of Mr. Lyan will be reimagining traditional cocktails through the wastED lens. And Henrietta Lovell of Rare Tea Company will be partnering with a handful of London's pastry luminaries to offer their own not-so-customary spins on Afternoon Tea.
wastED is a community of chefs, farmers, fishermen, distributors, processors, designers and retailers, working together to reconceive "waste" that occurs at every link in the food chain.
Their goal is to celebrate what chefs do every day on their menus (and peasant cooking has done for thousands of years): creating something delicious out of the ignored or un-coveted and inspiring new applications in our food system.
