FH DISCUSSES: SATURDAY 15.00 - 15.45
Come and listen to two legendary restauranteurs speak to Hannah MacInnes pioneering a new approach to "Zero Waste".
Douglas McMaster's award winning Brighton restaurant, Silo, was the first entirely "eco-eatery" this country saw. Along with Tom Hunt's Poco, Silo was conscious of our ingredients and environment long before others had given it a thought.
Milling their own flour, brewing their own alcohol, serving everything in and on recycled jars and plates and receiving all their deliveries in re-usable containers are just a few of their innovative ways they're cooking awesome food achieving zero waste.
In their own words, "SILO WAS CONCEIVED FROM A DESIRE TO INNOVATE THE FOOD INDUSTRY WHILST DEMONSTRATING RESPECT: RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, RESPECT FOR THE WAY OUR FOOD IS GENERATED AND RESPECT FOR THE NOURISHMENT GIVEN TO OUR BODIES."
Justin Horne founded Tiny Leaf last year - London's first organic, vegetarian & zero waste restaurant. Their menu takes root in organic surplus food stock, generously supplied by local food suppliers and supermarkets, farms, distributors, plant breeders and retailers. Their mission is simple and impressive: to make delicious dinners out of unwanted food. Justin's story and ethos is fascinating, inspiring and will hopefully make you think twice when ditching your dinner.
