In an interesting twist on the Great British Menu, four of the country's top chefs compete to cook food that would normally be thrown away. This program does a great job of showing just how much food we waste in this country: vegetables ploughed back into the ground because they don't meet supermarket standards; fruit and vegetables fed to pigs because of minor blemishes; unfashionable offal sent to the dog food factory; perfectly good food that has past its sell-by date salvaged from supermarket bins and the back our own fridges.
Angela Hartnett, Richard Corrigan, Matt Tebbutt and Simon Rimmer turn this 'waste' food into a fantastic banquet for 60 VIP guests. Although it's a competition and somebody has to lose, not one of them turns out a dud dish. See for yourself what they came up with and get some ideas on how to use up your own food leftovers - available on BBC iPlayer until September 1st.
