Oct 7, 2022Celebrity chefs ready for some fun competition at Potato Expo cook-off
When celebrity chef Simon Majumdar tweeted a photo of his Potato Expo 2022 cooking demonstration last January, Duff Goldman bemoaned missing the show. “WHY DIDN’T I KNOW THERE WAS SOMETHING CALLED “THE POTATO EXPO”?!?,” the Food Network personality asked in a retweet. Emmy Award-winning host of Chopped and Chopped Junior Ted Allen also jumped in to echo Goldman’s regret, posting his reply about his love of America’s number one vegetable: “The potato is a miracle product — as much a miracle as are eggs.”
After an offline discussion, the food personalities resolved to remedy their previous Potato Expo absences by taking the 2023 event by storm in a chef cookoff of their favorite potato recipes. The cooking competition, entitled, “This Spuds for You – Celebrity Chef Edition,” will be hosted by Allen and feature chef teams led by Majumdar and Goldman. The cookoff, along with a separate cooking demonstration by long-time Potato Expo favorite Majumdar, will serve as featured events of the Potato Expo 2023, held at the Gaylord Rockies Resort in Aurora, Colorado, January 4-5, 2023.
Early-bird registration for attendees and exhibitors is now open. Visit the Expo website at potato-expo.com to register, book lodging at the Gaylord Rockies Resort, and access further important information about the event.
