I love this idea..... When visiting the restaurant Rub and Stub in Copenhagen one could be forgiven for saying “This food taste like rubbish” because in an odd way you’d be absolutely correct. The restaurant creates dishes using food which supermarkets and farmers would usually throw away. I personally think this is a brilliant idea as we find out more true facts about sell by dates .1. The food that is dated with the sign ‘best eaten before’ doesn’t mean it can’t be eaten after the date and .2. Supermarkets and family homes are dumping millions of pounds worth of food just because it is out of ‘best eaten before sell by date. I remember interviewing on my radio show the owner of a supermarket in London who cooks all food by the recommended sell by date then customers can buy it to eat that day or simply freeze it to eat at a later date, do you see where I’m going with this?. Now back to Rub and Stub restaurant in Copenhagen. This revolutionary restaurant has taken the phrase 'waste not, want not' to new levels and offers its guests a menu made entirely from 'waste' food. Rub and Stub in Copenhagen, Denmark, creates dishes using food which supermarkets and farmers would usually throw away and is run and operated entirely by volunteers.
