Foodservice Recipe: Caribou Lasagna

This gluten free rendition of lasagna was inspired by the Greek dish Moussaka, which I first experienced on my recent visit to Athens. Moussaka, much like lasagna, is a Greek dish comprised of layers of potato, ground meats, eggplant and tomatoes.

My Feelings on Peelings

There comes a point when we as restaurateurs need to evaluate all aspects of every product used within our business. This holds an important value when many kitchens produce a plethora of menu items from scratch…

McCain® SureCrisp™ Crinkle Fries

McCain® SureCrisp™ fries have a clear coating that stays crispy for dine-in, carryout or delivery. They’re consumer-preferred over other clear-coat brands even after 20 minutes on the plate or up to 30 minutes when delivered.

Lamb Weston Potato Dippers

Potato Dippers are an extraordinary menu item: uniquely shaped, crispy and perfect for scooping or dipping, they are cut to look homemade.

Caribou Russet Potatoes

The Caribou Russet is a dual-purpose purpose, delivering classic russet flavors while working well in both mashed and fried offerings. The Caribou russet is also hearty, producing high yields with greater blight resistance and mid-season maturity.

Foodservice Recipe: Poutine Potato Cups

This recipe captures the wicked-craveable flavors of a French-Canadian classic. That of course, is the cheese curd covered and gravy smothered French fry dish known as poutine. This poutine dish however is prepared uniquely, in a fried potato cup.
