My partner Ayue with me took part in US Potato Fest, Culinary Fest cooking challenge. We named our team as SHERAY because I am Sherry and she is Ayue, so combination the named SHERAY. We got to think of the name for our team and also what we want to cook before take part in the challenge. Both of us also love roses, roses are red, and roses with thorns too.
If you have been following my instagram @sherrygo, you'll see my social updates from there.
Before the cooking starts we get to choose US potatoes that we need to use, then we are given an hour to cook. 

They are total of ten teams that took part, and all of us are bloggers. Yeah even our partners in cooking. Below the top photo is team Chikiboom created by Khai/Nannie.

 So ten recipes created on the US Potato Culinary Challenge, because of we need to get in the hall for let the judges to try the meals. I didn't get to snap all the photos.

Every team has come up with delicious meals for judges to try. Indeed we have make two sets the same, one for display and the other set for judges to try. #USpotatoes can create many delicious food, desserts and soup. Endless creativity, and instant success if you know how to cook them.
