Massimo Bottura, the chef and co-proprietor of Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy, needs no introduction. His restaurant has won every award given by the culinary world. If you want a reservation at his restaurant you have to book months ahead, and they can be as difficult to get as an audience with the Pope. However, he is now using his fame and influence to tackle, and hopefully solve, two of the world’s biggest problems namely hunger and food waste.
This book, Bread Is Gold, is the story of the start of that journey, which has led to the opening of several projects across the world and the foundation of the “Food For Soul” charity. Despite what you might think from the title, this is not a book about baking, it contains over 150 delicious recipes made from food that would otherwise be discarded.
