Guests: Jonathan Deutsch, PhD, Professor, Culinary Arts, Center for Food and Hospitality Management, Drexel University; Kris Moon, Vice President, James Beard Foundation Food waste is a problem globally, for a lot of reasons. Here in the US, most of the food gets wasted on the consumer end: in our homes, in grocery stores and in restaurants. That last category of food wasters is the focus of a new initiative at the James Beard Foundation, which is a big name in culinary arts, as all the foodies listening right now will know. The James Beard Foundation is testing a new curriculum at Drexel University intended to teach chefs how to get the most out of their ingredients and waste less.
