British Retailers Turn Fish Heads Into Energy

20 Jun

Most people pitch the ‘gross’ leftover food scraps they don’t use for cooking. But in England, retailers are trying to change that practice. Chicken fat, fish heads, and leftover sandwiches are just a few of the scraps being carted off to biogas plants so they can be reused as an energy source. As business owners become more environmentally conscious, this new role for discarded food comes right on time.

British Retailers Turn Waste Into Power

By on June 14, 2012

Bloomberg News

John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, likely never had an inkling that his culinary invention would revolutionize lunchtime. And it’s certain that he never dreamed that a cheddar ploughmans or an egg and cress would one day serve to heat British homes in wintertime.

Tesco (TSCO), Britain’s biggest supermarket chain, along with Marks & Spencer Group (MKS), John Lewis Partnership’s Waitrose, Wal-Mart’s (WMT) Asda unit, and J Sainsbury (SBRY), are carting off chicken fat, fish heads, and leftover sandwiches to biogas plants for conversion into electricity. For many British retailers, the new waste management dovetails with environmental aims. M&S announced this month that it had achieved its five-year objective of becoming “carbon neutral”—a goal many of its competitors share..

A Sandwich a Day: Smoked Pork at the Dickens Tavern in Longmont, CO

In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that’s what we’ll do. Here’s A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

The Smoked Pork & Pickled Pepper Sandwich at Dickens Tavern

The building that houses the Dickens Tavern in Longmont, Colorado, was built in 1881 by William Henry Dickens, a relative of the writer Charles Dickens. Upstairs from the Tavern is the Dickens Opera House, a music venue. Inside the walls (allegedly) are ghosts. But enough history.

The smoked pork and pickled pepper sandwich ($9) at the Dickens Tavern isn’t the prettiest girl at the dance, but looks are deceiving. The menu describes it as “smoked pork, pickles, hot peppers, melted cheese, all grilled on super toast with chipotle aioli,” but it looks a lot plainer than that.

In fact, it looks like shredded meat with cheese sauce on a large slice of bread. One bite, though, tells a different tale. There’s the smokiness of barbecue followed by the heat of peppers, the creaminess of cheese and aioli, and more smokiness from the chipotle.

I had to peek inside the sandwich to see where all the flavor was coming from, but no, there was nothing hiding, It looked like shredded meat with a melty cheesy sauce and bits of green that must have been the pickled peppers.

Sandwiches at the Dickens Tavern are served with skinny fries; this one came with a pickle spear, too. You can substitute salad for the fries for no extra charge, or opt for soup or onion rings for a buck, or sweet potato wedges for an extra $2.
