“The Potato USA visit was even more than I expected. We all learned something and the kids loved it. We have three recipes ready to go that we can add to our menus right now. That’s amazing. There was prep before, obviously, but we were able to work through the challenges in all three recipes in two days of hard work! We served over 2000 samples in 2 ½ hours! Whew!! It was a joy to work with Potatoes USA. Thank you so much for the opportunity!”

“We tested four new recipes at one of our high school campuses in collaboration with Potatoes USA. One recipe seemed to stand out from the rest, Shawarma Fries! Not only was it the student’s favorite, but it was my favorite as well. Our students really enjoyed the sampling and we are looking to incorporate this dish and other potatoes into our future menus.”
