Event description


Hate throwing away handfuls of kitchen scraps because you don't know what to do with it? Are you frustrated with how fast your compost bin fills up every night after dinner?


In Metro Vancouver, an average household throws out $700 worth of avoidable food waste per year. We think this is an outrageous amount of money and food wasted!

That's why we partnered up with Zero Waste Chef, Fred Chang, to empower you to save money and reduce waste at our Zero Waste Cooking Workshop.

In this fun and interactive workshop, you will learn:

  • how to grocery shop without packaging

  • how to use parts of vegetables that often get thrown out (eg. carrot tops, broccoli stems)

  • different ways to use up your kitchen scraps

  • how to properly cut a whole chicken with no waste + different ways to use up every part of the chicken

  • how to make your own ravioli from scratch filled with leftover vegetables

Zero Waste Dinner Menu

After some fun in the kitchen, you will get to sit back and enjoy a delicious 3 course Zero Waste Dinner made with fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients prepared by Chef Fred Chang.



Carrot top pesto and fresh carrots, served with Karmabitez crackers

Fresh ravioli with leftover summer vegetables

About Zero Waste Chef, Fred Chang

Fred Chang is a Vancouver native who began his career at the age of 12 working at local food chains, until he enrolled at the Culinary Institute of America in 2013. Understanding the warmth and care of mom & pop shops, it was the fine dining restaurants of New York City and San Francisco that solidified his passion into a craft and inspired the move back to Vancouver this past year. The choice to help grow his community and the drive to become a part of the Vancouver food scene, led to the creation of his own catering company, Heritage Catering, as well as the involvement with Oyster & King. It is through Heritage Catering that allows him to create experiences while using ordinary ingredients sourced locally in BC through Oyster & King to their maximum potential.
