How to make the most of your leftovers

Do you want to learn how to make the most out of your leftovers and how to transform them into tasty meals and snacks?
For one day only, Love Food Hate Waste are dropping in to Ruthin Craft Centre car park, to host live cookery demonstrations (with samples) and to share practical advice on how to plan meals, work out portion sizes, understand date labels and store food correctly to make it last longer.
Spaghetti measures will be given away free on the day to those who fill out a simple questionnaire.
The event will start with Denbighshire County Council's Chief Executive Mohammed Mehmet showing off his cookery skills, in a 'cook off' against sea food chef Clover Hudson - for the title of Chef Executive.
If this whets your appetite why not drop down on your lunch break or if you have the flexi time to spare come and see our very own Chief Executive cooking at 10.45am.
The event is being held in Ruthin Craft Centre car park on Wednesday, September 5, between 10.30 am and 4pm.
Every year in Denbighshire residents throw away 7,500 tonnes of food.
Although nearly half of the food waste is now recycled, the food waste disposal bill still comes to over £500,000.
And it gets worse; national statistics suggest that the average family spends £600 every year on food that ends up being thrown away.
Recycling our food waste is very important, but it is far better if we can avoid creating it in the first place.
