Ikea Canada has released a new IKEA cookbook to inspire Canadians to reduce food waste in their home.
According to a study released by Second Harvest in 2019, Canadians waste nearly 60 percent of food produced in Canada every year. This equates to 3% of Canada’s 2016 GDP and would feed every person living in Canada for almost 5 months.
With the corporate goal of becoming a circular and climate-positive business by 2030, IKEA wants to inspire Canadians to reduce food waste in their homes and teach them how to cook with food scraps that often end up in landfills.
Ikea has collaborated with 10 North American chefs to create the recipe book, The Scrap Book and each chef has contributed five recipes.
The 50 recipe cookbook features breakfast, mains, soups and dessert ideas from a diverse range of cuisines and cultures from chefs like Adrian Forte, Craig Wong, and Trevor Bird, is free to download online.
It is also available on Apple Books and Google Play Books.
If you want a physical copy of the book, you can enter online to win a limited edition physical copy of the 214-page book.
To support The ScrapsBook, IKEA will launch #Scrapcooking Sundays, a weekly series of live cooking tutorials on Instagram Live hosted by contributing chefs this Spring.
