I responded to a search for a chef to represent the US Potato board in Montevideo Uruguay on May 6th. I’m to come up with a PowerPoint presentation and to do a demo in front of a group of potato growers.
I’ve been to Brazil a couple of times and Argentina, but never Uruguay. I’m always excited to visit a new country and I have always heard good things about Montevideo. If it is anything like Argentina or Brazil I will be very happy.
Of course it sounds like I will only be there for a short time and it seems like a very long trip for the sum total of a 30 minute presentation, but what a great opportunity and who knows what kind of other opportunities this might open up.
I’m not sure if I will have to make the presentation in Spanish or English with a translator. Either way I will be out of my comfort zone and that is exciting.
So quick, begin researching spuds. Anyone got any good resources that I should focus on?
It turns out that the potato board is based in Denver. I believe that the lamb board is here as well. Maybe I can get them to send me to New Zealand on a combined board trip.
