The island council recently organised a special course for cookery professionals on how to prepare one of Tenerife’s most famous resources – potatoes. Coinciding with the United Nation’s declaration of 2008 as the International Year of the Potato, the council organised a special course in the Hotel Tigaiga on how to prepare this special tuber. Designed for professionals from bars, restaurants and hotels, well known chefs shared their potato secrets.
