CELEBRITY television chef Paul da Costa who co-owns The Galley restaurant in Topsham has helped launch a campaign aimed at reducing food waste.

Paul has teamed up with 'Don't Let Devon Go To Waste', an eco-themed initiative involving both Devon County and East Devon District Council, to launch the scheme.

The 'Love Summer Hate Waste' campaign encourages people to get creative with food leftovers.

Paul has devised a number of summer recipes, containing waste-saving ideas to help combat the �10b-worth of waste thrown away nationwide every year and to encourage people to reduce their carbon foot print.

He said: "If you were to consider vegetable peelings not as peelings but as a pound coin, you would not throw it away.

"The campaign includes a selection of my personal recipes for some fantastic summer favourites.
