In 2017, Food for Soul and Massimo Bottura published a collection of 150 recipes that had been prepared by some of the best chefs in the world at Refettorio Ambrosiano using only surplus ingredients. The book was titled Bread is Gold.
“Bread is Gold is a metaphor for giving value to the simplest things in life that we often
overlook. Such as the milk soup recipe that I grew up with, like many other Italian children, or the recipes that use day-old bread created by the chefs at Refettorio Ambrosiano. Bread is Gold is a way of looking at the world, looking at your pantry and finding inner beauty in the humblest ingredient.” - Massimo Bottura.
