From Trash to Treasure

This week on Fine Dining Lovers we visited the latest project from the Italian chef Massimo Bottura, a professional soup kitchen in Milan.

As part of Expo Milano 2015, Bottura has opened the kitchen in an old church, a place where he invites other visiting chefs to cook with food that is detained for the trash.

Recently Alain Ducasse came to cook at the kitchen and we were there to capture all the action on the night.

Professional Tasters 

We took a closer look at some of the new roles that sommeliers are undertaking these days with the rise of professional sake, tea, coffee and even chocolate tasters.

We looked at course for oil sommeliers, beer and cider and how those who were traditionally linked to the world of wine are widening their fields by widening their palettes.

Also this Week

We took a truly sweet tasting tour through the scened streets of Paris, looked into the origins of ginger and explained the classic Italian dish of fritto misto.
