Chef’s Tips/Recipe Spotlight:

Potato wedges make a great canvas for global flavors and ingredients – plus, they provide a unique crispy outside and fluffy inside that’s hard to beat. Instead of using wedges as an alternative to the traditional side of fries, consider putting a Mexican spin on them and use wedges as a base for nachos. Pile high with grilled chicken, queso, pico de gallo, guac and sour cream and you’ve got a new take on an appetizer favorite. Or, try a Mediterranean play and top with shawarma, tzatziki, picked red onion, feta and cucumbers for a shareable Gyro platter.
