Perfect Imperfection

I bought this potatoe at my local farmer market and it immediately reminded me of one of my favourite documentary: “The Gleaners and I” (Les glaneurs et la glaneuse).

In this documentary, Agnes Varda shows us how potatoes that are too small/big or malformed are discarded by the producers. She talks with people who glean after a city vegetable market closes and fill bags of produce only flawed by a bruise…

A beautiful documentary about waste (mainly food waste) and recycling that I would highly recommend.

Have a good week end!

    I haven’t seen the documentary you are referencing but I want to! Food waste is such an issue. I am sitting here in my kitchen next to the ugliest tomato you have ever seen and I can’t wait to eat it!
