Can you invent something from scraps?
Recently I watched the semi-final week of BBC’s Masterchef. The challenge was to make something innovative from scraps and leftovers including cod’s head, scallops, salmon bones, pig’s ear and leftover fruit and vegetables. This invention test resulted in dishes such as cods cheek and scallop dumplings, salmon and scallop ravioli, coquilles St. Jacques and banofee pie using a leftover banana. For the best dishes, the judges commented, “who would have known these came from scraps?”
