WINNIPEG — Local restaurants will soon vie for the champion title during the second-annual Potahto Week, which runs February 23 to March 3 in Winnipeg.
Sponsored by Peak of the Market, the week-long event challenges Winnipeg-area restaurants to put forward a signature dish made with Manitoba-grown potatoes.
“Potahto Week is back and so are the tasty dishes created by talented local chefs here in Winnipeg,” says Larry McIntosh, president and CEO of Peak of the Market. “We are encouraging local restaurants to sign-up, use some nutritious Manitoba potatoes and put their best dishes forward for Manitobans to enjoy.”
Potahto Week aims to promote the health attributes of Manitoba potatoes by encouraging Winnipeggers to try new dishes. The event seeks to help change perspectives on potatoes, showing people how certain recipes can elevate the classic vegetable.
Last year’s winner, as chosen by the public, was Winnipeg-based Brazen Hall for its Toban Potahto Sausage Soup.
