Portuguese recipes using old bread

food cooking in an oven

Zero waste cooking is an emerging trend and it is becoming a priority right now. Due to a mix of increased awareness towards environmental sustainability, circular economy, food and money saving, and a sense of practicality that has been sharpened by the lockdowns happening all over the world, it feels like we’re going back to basics, back to not wasting the food that we have at home.
