Despite a growing awareness of food waste, many well-intentioned home cooks lack the tools to change their habits. This handbook--packed with engaging checklists, simple recipes, practical strategies, and educational infographics--is the ultimate tool for reducing food waste. From a scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council come these everyday techniques that call for minimal adjustments of habit, from shopping, portioning, and using a refrigerator properly to simple preservation methods including freezing, pickling, and cellaring. At once a good read and a go-to reference, this handy guide is chock-full of helpful facts and tips, including 20 "use-it-up" recipes and a substantial directory of common foods.

Perfect introduction to waste reduction and food management. I read both this one and My Zero-Waste Kitchen (meh). I would drive straight into this book and then progress to a book titled "Food D.I.Y."

I will be rearranging my refrigerator shortly to follow the Waste-Free Kitchen Handbook suggestions. Maybe this will help with multiple jars of dill pickles or mustard being opened. And I must get a magnetic whiteboard for the fridge front to track items that need to be used so they won’t become a science experiment. This book is full of colorful charts that explain what should go where to take advantage of the colder areas of the appliance.

Know most of this stuff already but it'd be great for someone who didn't.

Great read as an introduction to the topic of waste, but too simple if you are already practicing basics.
