On March 9th & 10th WSPC had the opportunity to exhibit at the Northwest Women’s Show in Tacoma, WA. There was a lot of excitement in the air that weekend, and the crowds loved our chocolate covered potato chips, giveaway items, and chef demos, with an opportunity to meet the chefs in our booth after the demo! We would like to give a special thanks to the wonderful chefs- Kirsten Helle, Logan Niles and Meg Clark who partnered with us at this event. Our chefs demoed Crispy Potato Taco Bowls, Shepherds Pie, and Whole 30 Short Ribs and Potatoes. If you missed the stage demo, don’t worry these recipes are available now on our website. With over 10,000 attendees the 2019 NW Women’s Show allowed us to spread the word about the healthy Washington Potato, different ways to prepare them and we found this Show to be very beneficial to our mission.
