Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Katie Couric, SCRAPS is a half-hour reality series that follows Sur La Table Chef and executive producer Joel Gamoran 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 is 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 follow Joel on a one-of-a-kind food sourcing adventure in his refurbished 1963 Volkswagen bus, which doubles as his mobile kitchen. Season 2 of SCRAPS premiered on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT on FYI. In the season opener, Joel arrives in Big Sky country to team up with food waste champion, Eduardo Garcia, affectionately known as the "Bionic Chef." The 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? Additional chefs that Joel partners with in the new season of SCRAPS are: Brooke Williamson (Los Angeles, CA), Andy Baraghani (Bay Area, CA), Beverly Kim (Chicago, IL), Max Hardy (Detroit, MI), Tandy Wilson (Nashville, TN), Anthony Lamas (Louisville, KY), Jacques Pepin (Connecticut), and Jamie Bissonnette (Boston, MA).
On Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, FYI premiered the one-hour SCRAPS Thanksgiving special. 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 1 -- 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.
