So potatoes come in a variety of types and colors – classic, red, purple, yukon, russet, baked, sweet, fingerling, and THE NEW POTATO. These just happen to be my absolute favorite kind of potatoes for two very specific reasons – Laura & Danielle Kosann! Hands down there is no better potato and no better innovative team in my opinion who are bringing awareness to my favorite topic – FOOD! It seems as though we might be on a parallel mission EyeSwoon and The New Potato – connecting food with lifestyle and fashion – and furthermore celebrating style, beauty, and excitement surrounding food in a fresh modern approach.
I just might be the girls’ long lost step sister because the three of us together both looks & feels like family. After our fun-filled day in the kitchen I am proud to say that these new potatoes are now seasoned potatoes. I gave Danielle & Laura some sisterly cooking advice on how to crisp up your chicken – NO COVER when you’re searing – your skin just won’t brown steaming under that lid!
The girls are massive fans of the roast chicken at Barbuto, one of their swoonable downtown spots – when we discussed a snoop feature they both immediatly knew they wanted to pay homage to their tried and true favorite. I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the addition of the salsa verde (can’t live without it!) and this feature could not have been complete without new potatoes on the menu – an absolute must!
