Zero-waste: let's get cooking!

Eco-responsible cooking at a hotel is perfectly possible

You may have gathered by now that we take care of the environment here at NOMAD. Our motto is: waste nothing…everything can be transformed, even what’s on your plate!

say no to food waste

1.3 billion tonnes of food are thrown away or go to waste every year across the world…that figure is enough to make your head spin! So at NOMAD, we put in place simple actions every day in order to set things straight!

Cooking with zero waste is not just about paying attention to the use-by date on fresh produce, using up fruit and vegetables in good time…It’s also about learning to reuse leftovers with a little bit of skill and imagination in order to concoct really tasty dishes!
