Giving Thanks

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this year, with plenty of food on our tables, we’re remembering that food waste goes far beyond not cleaning your plate. Finding that nearly half of edible crops harvested get tossed or go to animals because they aren’t visually appealing enough, a catering company in Germany based its mission on making delicious food from the discards. With delightful dishes like Crooked Parsnip and Twisted Cucumber Soup, Culinary Misfits embraces the not-so-pretty, yet perfectly yummy veggies, illuminating the possibilities in what is otherwise discarded.
