My life is full with flavours and colours and today, I would like to share with you about the US Potatoes Culinary Festivals 2015. Yeahhh ... its Potatoes everyone .. I love potatoes !!

While most Malaysians may have become accustomed to enjoying potatoes in their more savoury forms such as fried, mashed or baked, the humble potato when cooked discerningly is in fact one of the healthiest vegetables one can consume.

Talking about potatoes, most of us are always worry cos potatoes are always categorized as high in carbohydrate but do not worry readers cos one medium-size (5.3 ounce) skin-on US potato contains only 110 calories per serving, boasts more potassium (620g) than a banana, provides almost half the daily value of vitamin C (45 percent) and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol. 

When it comes to US potatoes, Malaysians will not have to compromise taste for any health reasons. A healthy, balanced meal can be just as tasteful. Baked, mashed, roasted or fried, US potatoes have a remarkable ability to enhance whatever dish is served with them, enhancing presentation, adding value and appetite appeal. A growing pool of research confirms that potatoes play a positive role in healthy diet. Research published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition demonstrates that people can eat potatoes and still lose weight. I was told that potatoes are good for those who want to maintain their waistline. It is zero fat, high potassium, cholesterol free and most importantly high in fibre. No more worry about potatoes, readers. Potatoes are "Tummy Friendly". Hehe. 

The chefs of these respective restaurants have been tasked with inventing the most unique and delectable recipes they can conceive using quality US potatoes and they will be serving these wonderful potato dishes at their outlets around the Klang Valley.

The versatility of US potatoes has resulted in these chefs creating some truly creative variations of potato frittatas, potato mash-ups and even potato ice cream.
