Learn to cook without food scraps and reduce food waste in this informative cooking class with Chef Jenn. You'll learn tips for using every part of a plant or ingredient to minimize and even eliminate food scraps in your kitchen. First, you'll deconstruct a beet into the root, stem and leaves to compose a salad topped with balsamic and blueberries. Then, you'll prepare a hearty portobello "steak" with vegetables, using every part of the vegetable in your dish. For dessert, you'll bake fragrant orange spice cupcakes.
