This programme, reminiscent of something previously seen on Channel 4, follows four top chefs - Angela Hartnett, Richard Corrigan, Matt Tebbutt and Simon 'Somefing for the Weekend' Rimmer - as they journey deep into the heart of Britain's food waste problem, exploring how and why the nation throws away and reject huge quantities of perfectly edible food. Cameras follow the chefs as they source shocking amounts of unwanted food from every link in the food chain - from supermarkets to ordinary homes, markets to farms - and then transform it into mouth-watering dishes. The chefs face a unique and near-impossible task: can they create a fabulous banquet for over 60 VIPs using the food that the rest of us don't want? The dishes the chefs create are judged by four of the nation's toughest food critics - Matthew Fort, Prue Leith, Oliver Peyton and Jay Rayner - who decide which dishes go onto the menu for the lavish banquet designed to prove that saving scraps is good.
