Ikeas got your back.
A waste-less cookbook.
“We believe the kitchen is the heart of the home.
It’s where we gather, share, and celebrate on
a daily basis. So it’s not surprising that, because
of how much living we do there, the kitchen is
where the most waste is produced — especially
food waste. It’s so easy for us to buy just a little
too much food and have it end up in the compost
or the trash. Almost everyone has done this at
one time or another, so the kitchen tends to be
a wasteful place. But it doesn’t have to be.
That’s why IKEA has created The ScrapsBook,
in collaboration with chefs from across
North America. This cookbook is dedicated to
cooking with the little things we usually throw
away. Or, as we like to call it, “scrapcooking.”
Scrapcooking is about finding the beautiful
possibilities in that banana peel, radish top,
or even the chicken bones you’re about to toss,
and make the most of everything available
to you. It’s little things like these that can add
up to make a big difference.
Our homes and the way we live have a huge
impact on the planet, our health and well-being.
This is why we’re committed to creating a better
everyday life for the many people, and why we
believe those lives are truly better when they’re
lived sustainably. It’s a principle that we’ve always
strived to follow — from how we operate as a
business, to how we create and evolve our products
over the years. We believe it all comes down to
the big difference that comes from small changes.
And that’s what this book is all about — the little
things. So little, you might even call them “scraps.”
