If anyone can make the very important and urgent topic of food waste sexy and interesting maybe it’s Anthony Bourdain? The chef and TV host is the executive producer Wasted! The Story Of Food Waste, a documentary film on the subject that premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, with a wider release coming in October. Sorry John Oliver; maybe get some more tattoos?
The film—directed by The Mind of a Chef and Bourdain properties The Layover and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown producers/directors Anna Chai and Nari Kye— draws attention to the crisis while also offering solutions from industry luminaries like chef Dan Barber, who’s been a local champion of the cause at his Blue Hill restaurants. The film also includes appearances and insights from the likes of Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura and Danny Bowien, among others.
