Savoring The Best All Over Town…

Potatoes USA with its Malaysian partner, has recently organized the World of Flavors seminar in Penang to emphasize on the versatility and health benefits of consuming U.S. potatoes.

The seminar was held at The Wembley, Penang, with cooking demonstrations by two established chefs, namely Chef Steven Long, who hails from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Chef Federico Michieletto from Italy.

The workshop started with Mr. Eddie Saw, Potatoes USA Country Representative, briefing the audience on the background of US Potatoes and their nutritional benefits, which included Vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber. He also clarified on the myth behind the misperception of using potatoes as controversially, potatoes are healthy to consume with zero fat, zero sodium and zero cholesterol but it’s the cooking methods and ingredients used that matter most. In fact, potatoes have a more favorable overall nutrient-to-price ratio than many other vegetables and are an important staple worldwide.

The first cooking demonstration was presented by Chef Federico Michieletto with 3 recipes, namely Hashbrown with Meat Bolognese Ragout, Panzerotti Baresi Classic O Calzone and U.S. Lattice Cut Chocolate Mousse Dessert.
