The Idaho Potato Commission recently invited me to attend the Idaho Potato Harvest Tour. Since I’m currently without a working kitchen (making recipe development and food photography kind of tricky), I jumped at the chance to get out of my construction-dust filled home and breathe in some fresh Idaho air.
I wanted to drop in today and share a few photos I took on the trip. Idaho was an absolutely beautiful state, and I’m so glad I had a chance to make it there. The trip was a mix of bloggers, chefs, journalists, and friends of the IPC. We were treated like VIPs, with days full of things like dinner at a potato farm, tours of the Lamb Weston french fry plant, the Wada Farms packing plant and the Idahoan dehydrated plant, a stop at Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve, dinners at Chef Shane’s Perspective and the Trail Creek Cabin, the Idaho Potato Museum, beer and wine tasting at Sawtooth Brewery and an overnight stay at the luxurious Sun Valley Lodge.
Disclosure: This post is part of a relationship I have with the Idaho Potato Commission. I was hosted for a four day harvest tour, but was not otherwise compensated for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
