A third of the food bought in the UK ends up being thrown away, a statistic that not only costs the average family GBP420 a year but also has serious environmental implications. The credit crunch has lead to extensive media coverage on this subject, as well as high-profile campaigns such as the 'love food hate waste' campaign, which is supported by Sainsbury's - The Credit Crunch Cookbook also seeks to help in the fight against waste and should be seen as an essential addition to every kitchen.
