Italians 'reusing scraps and leftover food'
Italians are returning to their culinary roots by reusing scraps and leftovers in the latest sign that people are struggling to weather the country's economic crisis.
A survey on Friday found that 59 per cent of Italians are now reusing pasta, bread and vegetables in the kitchen to try to eke out their supplies to the next pay cheque.
They are drawing on a long and honourable tradition of "cucina povera" poor man's food in which cheap ingredients can be used to make delicious dishes.
Some of the best-known examples include a salad known as "panzanella", which consists of stale bread, olive oil and tomatoes, and "ribollita", a tasty soup made from bread and leftover vegetables.
The trend may help to cut down on food waste Italians throw away 10 million tonnes of food worth around 11 billion euros each year, the survey said.

NO! Food is life. Waste food. Wasting food is not good for anyone in anyway-to the economy, to the environment or to our own ethical justification. :-)

You've had the Maseratis, Ferraris and Lambos.

Now, it's time to get used to the real world.

Most Italians are welfare hoggistas, and stylistas.

It's all over.

Time to pay off.

damned
