FOR POTATO LOVER’S MONTH, PUT A NEW SPIN ON POTATO PREPARATIONS
Spiralized Idaho® Potatoes Take Texture and Presentation to the Next Level
Eagle ID (February 2017)—Every Potato Lover’s Month (February), the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) explores Idaho® Potato versatility from a different and exciting angle. For 2017, we’re showcasing spiralizing, a preparation method that gives Idaho® Potatoes a whole new look. Spiralizing turns our top quality potatoes into all natural, single-ingredient noodles that are heart-healthy, gluten-free and vegan/vegetarian-friendly, making them an ideal ingredient for signature appetizers, salads and entrees.
Spiralized potatoes can make the dish. Amanda Cohen, whose innovative restaurant, Dirt Candy (New York City) is an incubator for chic and satisfying vegetarian dishes, created a unique Spiral Idaho® Potato Salad around thin Russet and Yukon Gold potato ribbons that are quickly sautéed and dressed to keep a crisp texture. At Campono (Washington DC), Tracy O’Grady wraps cheesy-potato sticks with thin potato spirals before frying them, doubling the flavor and crunchy appeal of her Spiral Cut Idaho® Potato French Fries.

About the Idaho Potato Commission
Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous “Grown in Idaho®” seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho’s growing season of warm days and cool nights, ample mountain–fed irrigation and rich volcanic soil, give Idaho® potatoes their unique texture, taste and dependable performance. These ideal growing conditions are what differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states. For more information, visit: www.idahopotato.com.
