About Waste is Gold


Beehive Juice Bar is a small counter in the back of a South Miami health food store, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in character. Owner Carlos Schichi and his tasty vegan eats have amassed a devoted following over the years with a changing menu every single day.

Waste is Gold is an anti-food waste event featuring Miami restaurants that have created dishes made out of food waste ingredients. Participating chefs are challenged to design a dish or repurpose an existing menu item and customers can order these items on the weekend of March 26-28 via curbside pickup, delivery and dine-in.

In the US alone, 40% of all food produced goes uneaten, making up 133 billion pounds in landfills and totaling $161 billion of food waste per year. 

It's in this backdrop that Choco - a new app providing free order management technology to restaurants and food suppliers- has organized this campaign. The initiative touches on the interconnections of food, sustainability and technology for the future of restaurants.

"Ugly" Cheesecake and Almond Buttercups

Pionono (March 26th): For this dish we use a vegan version of Cuban-style Picadillo we run as a special the day before. We line a casserole dish with strips of overripe plantains, fill the casserole with the rejuvenated Picadillo and finish it with another layer of the overripe plantains. 

Spinach Cake with Roasted Pepper Sauce (March 27th): The Spinach Cake is a dish best made using leftover rice. It is actually preferable to freshly cooked rice. The rice is kneaded with cooked spinach and seasoned to taste. It is then formed in a pan where it is rebaked in the oven and paired with a Roasted Pepper Sauce.
