The event was sponsored by The Idaho Potato Commission and produced by Erika Kerekes. She was assisted by Judy Lyness and they cooked up a decadent potato spread! Imagine every dish based around potatoes, really I was in heaven!
I learned all sorts of fascinating facts about my beloved potato. We won’t talk about the 125 pounds each person consumes each year. Potatoes are fat free and chocked full of potassium and vitamin C.
My favorite and clearly everyone else’s was the Kale Pesto Potato Lasagna. You must try this. It was delicious. She made them in little bit size morsels but I am thinking casserole size for my next dinner party or maybe to take to a friend.
Dish after dish came out – Be My Valentine Twice-Baked Potatoes, Potato blintzes and Shepherd Pie Spoonfuls.
They outdid themselves. Plus I got a preview taste of the next Not Ketchup flavor. You will love it.
It was good for my soul to go and be with my people. I had the opportunity to meet Don and his team from The Idaho Potato Commission along with many other local bloggers. We clearly love food here in southern California. This year I want to make the effort more. I am never sad I went and come away energized.
I almost forgot the adorable heart shaped chips. How cute are they?
February is National Potato Lovers month. What will you cook up?
I have a bag of fingerlings I am dreaming up a new dish for…stay tuned. In the meantime, go make the Kale Pesto Potato Lasagna.
