Day 2: US Potato Board Potato Safari 3


Excited to start the second of the 3-day event of US Potato Board Potato Safari 3 event here in Davao City.  Starting off the day with a cooking demo with USPB guest- chef Sandy Daza at the Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao. I was a bit late for the event but I am glad to have seen Chef Sandy cook and explained the versatility of potatoes and how we can actually incorporate it in almost every  dish.
