A Stir The Pots Post

Waste Not Want Not

Below is a recent shot of Sullivan Street Bakery owner/baker James Lahey. Stopping by to say hello, I found him working on  an interesting batch of bread for an event dubbed #waSted. It's a pop up event at Blue Hill which will be devoted to the theme of food waste and re-use.

James' dough for the event incorporated recycled flour (from the previous evening), leftover olive brine, old bran and the table dust recovered from the vacuum that cleans out the ovens. Remarkable!
