Thanksgiving is the most American holiday. It doesn’t matter where you came from or what you believe, it’s about gathering with family and friends to show thanks and share some amazing food. But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming and it doesn’t have to be wasteful! When you cook scrappy, you stay happy! This year Joel has invited a bunch of friends from Season One–plus some new faces–to an epic Thanksgiving weekend in beautiful Vermont. By Thursday night your belly is full, the fridge is packed with leftovers. But that big feast is just the start of the fun! You’ve got three more days with friends and family, so we are going to help you have the scrappiest Thanksgiving weekend ever! Joel and his friends will show you how to cook for the entire weekend, and how to avoid any food waste from hitting the trash.

Joel arrives in the Second City–Chicago, Illinois–and meets up with Michelin-rated chef, Beverly Kim, to create a dinner menu featuring ingredients that usually wind up in the trash. Our chefs’ mission to find scraps sends them all over town, from a steak processing facility to a northside Polish deli. Joel and Beverly then give a scrappy makeover to classic recipes that have been featured in restaurants across the country for more than hundred years. Their goal: convince heritage brand business leaders–firm devotees of tradition–to forever change the way they look at food waste.

Joel Gamoran visits the postcard perfect Pacific Coast to team up with fellow food waste warrior, Brooke Williamson, the queen of beachside gourmet cuisine. Our chefs set out on a bold mission: reinvent the iconic Southern Cal fish taco using ingredients usually tossed in the trash, and convince L.A. natives to permanently join the Scraps movement. After reeling in a few “trash fish” and handpicking some busted citrus, Joel and Brooke attempt to transform the otherwise wasted ingredients into an unforgettable meal. But does their scrappy makeover have what it takes to win over the ultimate beachside fish taco experts?
Bozeman, MontanaAired on Oct 11, 2018
Host Chef Joel Gamoran arrives in Big Sky country to team up with food waste champion, Eduardo Garcia, affectionately known as the “Bionic Chef.” Our chefs set their sights on a bold culinary challenge: make a better version of an iconic cowboy dish using ingredients usually thrown in the trash, and recruit multigenerational Montana ranchers into the food waste movement. Joel and Eduardo’s Montana adventure takes them wading through chilly mountain streams and galloping horseback over rugged ranchland–all in the name of saving scraps. But does their ambitious menu filled with bizarre beef offcuts and fried fish bones pack enough taste punch to satisfy the headstrong cowboys?
FYI is partnering with Sur La Table to produce the new culinary series SCRAPS, where national Sur La Table Chef Joel Gamoran travels across the U.S. creating incredible feasts in unexpected places, using the most out-of-the-box ingredients – food waste and scraps. Each episode of SCRAPS will follow Chef Joel to a new city where he partners with food waste champions to celebrate the local cuisine and create a delicious meal with food items many consider to be waste, like banana peels, shrimp shells, chicken bones and carrot stems. The pressure will be on as Joel will have less than a day to source ingredients, build a full menu and create a meal for an outdoor dinner party. From roadside foraging, to chocolate roasting, to oyster hunting – viewers will follow Joel on a one-of-a-kind food sourcing adventure in his refurbished 1963 Volkswagen bus, which doubles as his mobile kitchen. The KitchenAid® Artisan® Stand Mixer, stand mixer attachments, food processor, cold brew coffee maker and the Pro Line® Series Blender will be used in the series to make everything from fresh pasta to veggie noodles and more.
