WARPED AND WONDERFUL: Clayton Donovan does a cooking demonstration at the Coffs Coast Growers Market.

APPEARANCES can be deceiving.

Fruit and vegetables that are a little bit warped in appearance are no less wonderful to the tastebuds.

This was the message promoted by celebrity chef Clayton Donovan at the Coffs Coast Growers Market, as he cooked up a fish dish using deformed tomatoes and twisted celeriac.

The cooking demonstration was part of the Sustainable Living Festival, which, among a host of sustainability displays, highlighted the need to reduce food waste.

High cosmetic standards in Australia mean that 20-40% of fruit and vegetables grown are rejected before they reach supermarket shelves.

Along with the cooking show, winners of the CCGM Warped Vegies competition were announced.

Macksville Primary School won the schools section with "Chrissy the Carrot", and the individual winner was Erin Ostwald whose "Smiling Capsicum" earned her a $500 Mother Nature's voucher.
