Did you know that 45% of root crops, fruit and vegetables produced globally are lost or wasted per year. To mark Stop Food Waste Day on Wednesday 28th April, we are looking at just a few of our favourite fruits and vegetables and revealing innovative approaches to using all of the produce in a bid to help reduce food waste.
One of the best ways to reduce food waste is to plan your meals by making a list of dishes and snacks for the week. This forward planning will mean that you can efficiently shop and only buy ingredients that you know that you will use. It will also mean that you can ensure that leftovers can be used in subsequent meals.
Converting to a plant-based diet due to digestive issues was the catalyst for Luce Hosier to not only change the way she ate, but also completely change her lifestyle. Working as an Insurance Broker, Luce gave up her 9-5 job to become a food photographer and recipe developer, after she was inspired by the experimenting she was forced to do in her kitchen while looking for new tasty plant-based meals.
For self-taught cook, recipe developer and food content creator Meliz Berg, her love of food and the joy associated with cooking was installed in her from a very young age. From a Turkish Cypriot family, Meliz grew up in London watching her mum make every traditional meal from scratch and where at the centre of every family occasion was a beautiful selection of homemade food.
For us it has been a whirlwind of a year and it’s not until we took a moment to look back, scrolling through photos, that we realised how far we have come.

Last week Magnificent Marrow were honoured to be part of a delicious event which saw vegan hair care brand Pureology partner with cook, author and food writer Anna Barnett to host a cook-a-long aptly named The Proof is in Pureology.
What a year, eh? For us it has been a year that we literally never dreamed of! At the beginning of 2020 Magnificent Marrow wasn’t even an idea that we had contemplated but when the world changed, we had to change with it and what a ride the last nine months have been.
When it comes to creating delicious mouth watering dishes, the chef's at By Word of Mouth, a family-run specialist event catering company, have years of experience. With an impressive 35-year history, the London based caterers have worked on an array of glittering events both at home and abroad. But like many businesses in the events arena, the company has felt the effects of lockdown and has had to think outside the box. In the first of our Supplier Spotlight series, Ed Holdcroft, Senior Event Planner at By Word of Mouth, talks to us about how they pivoted their business to create By Word of Mouth at Home, a fabulous range of frozen dishes for all the family.
When it comes to food and children there aren’t many parents who haven’t struggled at some point to get their kids eating a varied diet. From the common battle of getting little ones to eat their greens to the daily conundrum of what meals to offer for a balanced diet, cooking for a family can often become stressful and a chore. And no one knows more about this than Shikha Gill, founder of My Little Food Critic.
Like most of us, chef Tony Parkin has found lockdown a strange time and although he admits there have been days where he hasn’t done much, he also reveals he has used the time to come up with new ways to push his restaurant forward.
