all of us throw away food. we buy too much. we don't plan. and, living in a hostile environment, it's all too easy to forget to catch fresh food in the small window before it spoils.
equally, who knows what's lurking at the back of your storecupboard? i had a clean out of mine last weekend and i'm ashamed to stay i found tins of chick peas hidden right at the back that should have been eaten four years ago... not good!
so i was pleased to discover www.cookingbynumbers.com/ check your cupboard and fridge then type what you've got into the web site and it will come back with suggested recipes. you may have to experiment a bit, but if nothing else it will give you ideas instead of reaching for the home delivery menus - yes, we know you have a pile of them... now there's no excuse to waste food!
