It does have a few things that Waste Free Kitchen Handbook does not have, for example, the recipes in My Zero-Waste Kitchen are either vegan or much more vegan & vegetarian-friendly.
Also, the 2 books have a few somewhat differing opinions on how to compost & how to store food. Like some produce, 1 book would say store it in the high humidity produce drawer while another said to store it in the low humidity.
On the compost, 1 book said to add water to dry compost, the other did not mention that, & they both had different information on what your green to brown compost ratio should be.
I think this is a very fun book, quite colorful & would be great for introducing to kids.
I was disappointed to see that the cover seems to be coated in plastic, & that both books recommended storing your food in plastic bags or vaccuum sealed plastic bags. Plastic will release toxins into your food, & when you throw them out, will release toxins into waterways etc. A better solution would be freezing in food-grade silicone freezer bags, like these: https://www.amazon.com/PureSiliconeWare-Liters-Reusable-Silicone-Kitchen/dp/B01KW7NF3E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487707629&sr=8-1&keywords=food+grade+silicone+freezer+bags
I was happy to see that they mention with heat that plastic would break down, but they did not really explain the ramifications of that being leaching toxins into food; & also glad that freezing in glass jars was mentioned. Both books mentioned freezing some items on baking sheets before putting in a glass jar, which is a good idea.
It is a very short book & I do think it is worth the read if you want to know more about food saving.
Food waste experts may not find a whole lot in this book, other than maybe some recipes?
This is a short - 72 page - colourful collection of tips on how to minimise waste from your kitchen, with some recipes
Each page has a few paragraphs of text, padded out by using text boxes and lots of illustrations.
Very experienced thrifty people will still find some ideas here that they haven't come across but they may be few and far between. The concept of using potato peel to make crisps has been established by quite a few writers now, as is sprouting new lettuce plants from the base of varieties that are sold with a rootable base such as Romaine and Little Gem (UK varieties). In fact, I have Eighties cookbooks that recommend these tips.
Running a truly zero waste kitchen is a bold claim to make. What about banana peels for example?
Well, a fruit cake recipe can be 'zero wasted' by replacing the dried fruit and fruit juice with 6 liquidised banana peels, apparently.
Part of me is dying to try this out, the other, more sensible part is nervous at the prospect of wasting the other ingredients -they include coconut oil and maple syrup, which are relatively expensive in the UK.
It may be a zero waste cake but it's not a cheap one.
This is mostly a book of quick tips, rather than zero waste recipes.
There are in fact, just ten actual zero waste recipes. The recipe given for flapjack is fairly standard, apart from a use for leftover fruit juicing pulp, if you have a juicer, that is.
The "standard" version of the recipe is given in every case. This is on the left hand side of the page, with the exhortation to 'Now Zero Waste It' on the right, and a modified zero waste version of the recipe.
Zero waste suggestions include liquidising watermelon rinds to pad out smoothies. This would be ok if you had used a melon baller, but would you really want to drink a rind touched by someone else's lips and teeth, as is hinted at? Yuck.
I applaud all actions to minimise food waste, which is why this gets four stars in spite of the limited content.
However, do be aware of the fairly limited content if you are already waste aware. You may want to give the recipes a try once, but find the book languishes on your bookshelves beyond that.
