Massimo’s Zero Waste Vegetable Elixer

I’ve been watching a masterclass with Italian chef Massimo Bottura on Masterclass.com. He is amazing.

One of his basic principles is “zero waste cooking,” making use of parts of ingredients that many people would throw away.

But he uses these scraps in ways that exhalt them.

Where others might make “vegetable stock,” he makes The Broth of Everything which extracts the “mood” from scraps and vegetables.

And and it really does. This technique for making vegetable broth transforms the mundane into what he calls “vegetable elixir.”
