Building Sales With Potato Pasta

Q:

I see your posts on Instagram as Potatohead100 and wonder if you have any recommendations for an interesting appetizer made with potatoes?

A:

First, classically prepared gnocchi but with Idaho potatoes is sure to be a hit. Appetizer sized pasta dishes still leave the customer wanting more, sometimes gnocchi as an entree is too filling. Recently, while at the Brown Palace in Denver they served up a variation of their potato pierogies with a center of mashed Idaho Purple Peruvian Potatoes from Southwind Farms in Idaho, a shipper that specializes in fingerlings offered them from September to April/May. What a tasty appetizer!
