Eating vegetables from leaf to root.


Leaf to Root®* – Eating vegetables from leaf to root.

Carrot leaves, radish leaves, watermelon rind: these vegetable parts are not only edible, they also provide new taste experiences. Just as with meat, where the fillet is not necessarily the best cut, there are also new parts to discover with vegetables: Watermelon peels become salad, kohlrabi leaves become chips, cauliflower leaves become a curry. Esther Kern, initiator of the “Leaf to Root®*” campaign, and the Hiltl professionals show a variety how to use leaves, stems, stalks and roots. The course is geared towards everyday cooking and vegetable parts that are also available in the supermarket. Thanks to Leaf to Root, you will not only avoid food waste, but you will also discover new ways of preparing vegetables for your own personal cuisine, with which you can also surprise your guests.
