Q&A: Center of the Plate Potatoes


I noticed that the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) in St. Helena recently held a nutrition conference called Produce First!  Any thoughts on how I can make potatoes more center of the plate?


This is an easy one. First of all, many chefs develop recipes for the protein to be placed right on top of potatoes. Below is a list with links to some delicious examples!

Recipes from top to bottom, left to right:

Tenderloin of Beef with Roasted Shallot Idaho® Potatoes and a Merlot Reduction
Homemade Idaho® Potato Gnocchi – Bolognese
Golden Coins Topped with Country Mashed Idaho® Potatoes
