Love Your Leftovers This Christmas
Send your recipes and you could be a winner
This Christmas, residents in Ealing can win £100 to spend in a local sustainable restaurant - like Charlotte's Place - or a hamper full of eco goodies, simply by sharing their best Christmas leftover tips.
We all know how much food we can end up wasting at Christmas – all those soggy sprouts and turkey trimmings we never get round to eating. In fact, it’s estimated that residents in West London will throw out a whopping 16,500 tonnes of perfectly edible food over the festive period costing each household around £50.
That’s why the West London Waste Authority has launched a fantastic competition for residents to swap their best recipes for making the most of their lovely leftovers. All you need to do is send in a recipe for either a starter, main meal or desert using at least two items of leftovers from your Christmas dinner. A panel of judges will then pick the tastiest recipe that uses leftovers most creatively.
The closing date for entries is 23 January 2011. Send your recipe (with full instructions) to email@example.com or by post to Waste Minimisation Coordinator, WLWA, Mogden Works, Modgen Lane, Isleworth, Middlesex, TW7 7LP. Make sure you also include:
