Gisele Bündchen might live the glossy life of a supermodel, but the Brazilian stunner isn't opposed to eating waste.
Food waste, that is, which Mrs. Tom Brady proudly scarfed down at Blue Hill chef Dan Barber's two-week-long pop-up, appropriately named WastED. Bündchen declared the feast to be "one of the best meals" she'd ever had in a post on Instagram.
In a conversation with HuffPost Live's Nancy Redd on Tuesday, Barber explained that cooking with yesterday's food scraps is actually incredibly common among chefs -- it's just not something they publicize.
"It wasn't hard [for me to do] because chefs do that every day," he said. "We just don't call it waste."
In the case of ravioli, a patron will likely encounter "greens damaged from yesterday, not used from yesterday, or cooked from yesterday," repurposed with other fresh ingredients.
"I wanted to take what good chefs do every day in their restaurants and wear it on our sleeve," he recalled. "This is actually wasted food, but we're going to put it in the context of delight and pleasure."
Dinner at WastED restaurant. One of the best meals that I’ve ever had. I can’t believe they cook exclusively with food waste, it’s amazing. Dan Barber you are a genius. #sustainability #foodwaste #reuse #amazingideas #delicoiusfood #lategram 👏👏👏 Jantar no restaurante WastED. Uma das melhores refeições que já tive. Não acredito que é feito exclusivamente com comidas que iriam ser desperdiçadas, é incrível. Dan Barber você é um gênio. #sustentabilidade #desperdíciodecomida #reutilizar #ideiasincríveis #comidadeliciosa
