A sustainable supper club is coming to Waterford next month and it’s well worth checking out.

Wasted Supper Club will kick off the Harvest Festival on Friday, September 6, with a schedule of great foodie events taking place around the city over the weekend.

Taking place at the fab GROW HQ, the zero-waste dinner will be created by HQ Head Chef JB Dubois and visiting chef and Chef’s Manifesto Ambassador, Conor Spacey of Food Space.

50 diners will get the chance to try the delicious four-course meal made entirely from food waste at this unique supper club.

Tickets are €45 which includes a four-course meal plus a welcome HQ Garden Cocktail and you can book them online here.

GROW HQ, the headquarters of the not-for-profit GIY movement, is an award winning sustainable food business. It offers a year-round food education programme and a restaurant menu that changes daily according to the produce available in the veg garden, which is just 140 paces from the kitchen.

The ethos is simple – food can make us healthier and more sustainable, and there should be no barriers between where it is grown, cooked and eaten. The centre operates a closed-loop nutrient cycle whereby all food waste from the café is composted to return nutrients to the soil.

Michael Kelly, GIY founder and CEO, said, “Chefs have an outsized influence that they can use to put sustainability at the core of societies. We need to mobilise them urgently and the Chef’s Manifesto is an ideal conduit for that – it’s ambitious and infinitely scaleable, but also practical and achievable.”
