Zero waste kitchen: six meals with one chicken

The 171st issue of “La Terre, Lapierre et Vous”, Radio SCOOP’s “ecolo” show, focuses this Wednesday on “zero waste” cooking, and more specifically on six ways to cook your chicken without spoiling anything.

The installation of a new industrial chicken coop in Cruzilles-lès-Mépillat in the Ain, in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, makes the people of the river grind their teeth! 23,000 pounds would take place in a building located 200 meters from the houses. Riverrains set up a collective and launched a petition against the project.

There is no question here of taking sides for or against industrial livestock, much less for or against eating meat: it is everyone’s choice. On the other hand, it is an opportunity to think about ways to limit food waste.

And what better than that zero waste kitchen to make the most of our food?
