We believe the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where we gather, share, and celebrate on a daily basis. So it’s not surprising that, because of how much living we do there, the kitchen is where the most waste is produced — especially food waste. It’s so easy for us to buy just a little too much food and have it end up in the compost or the trash. Almost everyone has done this at one time or another, so the kitchen tends to be a wasteful place. But it doesn’t have to be.
That’s why IKEA has created The ScrapsBook, in collaboration with chefs from across North America. This cookbook is dedicated to cooking with the little things we usually throw away. Or, as we like to call it, “scrapcooking.”
Scrapcooking is about finding the beautiful possibilities in that banana peel, radish top, or even the chicken bones you’re about to toss, and make the most of everything available to you. It’s little things like these that can add up to make a big difference.
Our homes and the way we live have a huge impact on the planet, our health and our well-being. This is why we’re committed to creating a better everyday life for many people, and why we believe those lives are truly better when they’re lived sustainably. It’s a principle that we’ve always strived to follow — from how we operate as a business, to how we create and evolve our products over the years. We believe it all comes down to the big difference that comes from small changes. And that’s what this book is all about — the little things. So little, you might even call them “scraps.”
