    Jay Rayner joined the judging panel on The Great British Waste Menu, addressing Britain’s growing problem with waste as the show investigated why the nation throws away shocking quantities of perfectly edible food.

    The show challenged some of Britain’s top chefs to tackle the nation’s problem with food wastage, and create a delicious banquet for over 60 VIPs using food that the rest of us don't want. Matthew Fort, Prue Leith and Oliver Peyton joined Jay to decide which dishes should go onto the menu for the lavish banquet designed to prove that saving scraps is good.

    If you’ve ever wondered why feeding your family is so expensive, seeing 30,000 heads of lettuce ploughed back into the ground at just one farm on one day because they’re the wrong size or a little discoloured is hugely depressing – not to say totally scandalous. Jane Simon
