Recipes using Christmas leftovers
In a drive to inspire the nation to reduce their food waste this Christmas, hotel The Corner London City has developed a range of tasty festive-themed breakfast recipes designed to use up typical leftovers from the Big Day.
These imaginative yuletide recipes are perfect for this time of year when you have a fridge packed full of leftovers but lack the inspiration to find creative ways to use them.
On a mission to reduce food waste as part of their overall sustainability drive to be the greenest hotel in London, the hotel already serves daily delicious breakfasts made from leftovers as part of their regular menu.
To accompany these clever Christmas recipe hacks, the hotel has also created four delectable cocktails and mocktails which also use Christmas leftovers or follow a breakfast theme.
Head Chef Stephen Tims, the mastermind behind the leftovers initiative said: “It’s really important we consider every option when it comes to sustainability and waste reduction. Repurposing good quality leftover ingredients is such a simple and effective way of producing tasty meals the whole family can enjoy with the added bonus of reducing food waste and saving money. It’s win-win. Quick and effective leftover menu options are endless, especially at Christmas when there’s often more choice than normal in our fridges but a lack of inspiration can scupper good intentions and that’s where we’d like to help”.
The hotel’s credentials to be the greenest hotel in London can be seen in every corner of the hotel. All bedrooms feature a power-saving rain shower with water-saving technology and a fully sustainable hypoallergenic super king mattress from UK based Natural Mat. And if guests opt not to have their room serviced, they get a voucher for a free drink in the bar.
Further sustainable initiatives in the hotel include energy-saving lights throughout, sustainably-sourced fabrics, organic toiletries, complimentary recycled bikes for guests to use and a quest to only use locally sourced ingredients and local suppliers.
Adding to the quirkiness, the rooms all contain bespoke handmade furniture made by artist Sander Bokkinga using reclaimed wood and old hosepipes.
Rooms at The Corner London City start from £65 per night for a double Snug room. To book, please visit the new website https://www.thecornerlondoncity.co.uk/ or call 020 3021 1440.
