DURING the recent Wexford Food & Wine Festival was an an event tucked away in its Saturday afternoon programme which concerns every cost-conscious household.

D'Lush Café at Wexford Arts Centre in association with 'VOICE of Irish Concern for the Environment', had a cooking without waste cookery demonstration. The café's three chefs, Eugene 'Rocky' Rockett, Lee Saunders and Siobhan Cloake, demonstrated how to cook waste-less, getting the most out of the food you grow or buy.

In the process they cooked up the most delicious tasty food which, needless to say, was wolfed down by a delighted audience! The bulk of the café's ingredients are sourced locally.

The veg, for example is grown, naturally and chemical-free, near Ferns.
