If this video doesn’t make you want to go dumpster diving, I doubt anything will.
Waste Cooking is an Austrian reality show that began airing on television in December (episodes are also online minus the subtitles). Divers hunt and gather what treasures they can from the trash and hold public cooking demonstrations to tempt passersby to try their gourmet, formerly trash concoctions. Hilarity ensues. And, hopefully, some learning and awareness.
The group has a great logo and a neat slogan: “Food is culture…Don’t Waste it–Cook it!” And they have also created this engrossing short film.
