Teacher: Potato chips, hash-browns, baked potatoes, home fries, mashed potatoes, tater skins. These are just some of the incredibly delicious things you can make with potatoes. The potato is an unusual little tuber that has played an important role in the history of the world and was, in fact, the primary food crop for an entire nation. Potato Day celebrates this wonderful tuber and all the things you can use it for.

 What’s your favorite potato treat?


History of Potato Day

           Presenter 1: Potatoes were first cultivated by man in Southern Peru and the Northwest regions of Bolivia sometime between 5000 and 8000 BC. From that point forward it has spread all over the globe to become one of the primary staple crops of many cultures. Potatoes are a favorite part of American cuisine, with millions of different forms of preparation to be found. Potatoes are even used to make bread, rolls, and pancakes, and as such can be found in every meal of the day.

For a time, Ireland was so reliant on the potato as a food crop that a potato plague managed to starve the entire country. Make no mistake, there was plenty of food being grown in Ireland at the time, 5 ships full a day were being sailed out of the country, but the people of Ireland were being drained dry by the English who ruled them that potatoes and cabbage were all they had to live on.


How to Celebrate Potato Day

             Presenter 2:  Potato Day is best celebrated by incorporating the noble potato into every dish you prepare. For breakfast, you can’t beat hash browns seasoned with salt and pepper and drowned in sausage gravy and cheese. Lunch should always be accompanied by a bag of potato chips, especially if you spread them across your sandwich to give it a nice salty crunch. Dinner time isn’t complete unless you have a baked potato, or our personal favorite, mashed potatoes with garlic, onion, and cheddar cheese mixed in. It may be nothing more than a simple tuber, but Potato Day gives it a moment to shine!

It’s National Potato Day! Potatoes have been popular parts of diets around the world for centuries.

Did you know that more than 45 billion pounds of potatoes are harvested in the U.S. each year? We use them to make baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, home fries, French fries—the list is endless!

Potatoes are not only tasty—they’re good for you! They contain high levels of important vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, potassium, and iron. Today, enjoy potatoes prepared your favorite way to celebrate National Potato Day!

So this evening we’re asking: What’s the best way to enjoy spuds?

Teacher: Now we have the emblem! Let us sing a wonderful potato song!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Co4YI_Vsmg

Lyrics:  They're red, they're white, they're brown

     They get that way underground

   There can't be much to do

 So now they have blue ones too.


We don't care what they look like, we'll eat them

Any way they can fit on our plate

Any way we can conjure to heat them

We're delighted to think they're just great.

PoTato poTato poTato

PotaTo potaTo potaTo


Sometimes you ditch the skin

To eat what it's holding in

Sometimes you'd rather, please,

Have just the outside with cheese.


They have eyes but they do not have faces

I don't know if their feeling get hurt

By just hanging around in dark places

Where they only can stare at the dirt.

PoTato poTato poTato

PotaTo potaTo potaTo


I guess the use is scant

For other parts of the plant

But that which grows in view

Is eating potato too.


I imagine them under their acres

Out in Idaho or up in Maine

They'll be wondering if they'll be bakers

Or new, deep-fried, boiled or plain.

Teacher: Ready to peel your potato? (contest)

Certainly one of the most popular Potato Days events is the Potato Peeling Contest.  This contest is one of the best loved among children and adults. Anyone of appropriate age and knows how to cope with a knife, either male or female is encouraged to crate the longest stripe!


Presenter 1: Why do we love National Potato Day?

  • Potatoes are a staple for a reason

         Hash browns or potato salad, hot or cold, no matter how you slice ‘em, potatoes have been a staple in diets all over the world because they’re easy to grow, tasty, and relatively inexpensive to produce and buy. Nearly ever cuisine has potatoes in it, so you can take a culinary journey with your trusty potato by your side.


  • Potatoes are the best snack

         The people have spoken! Potato chips are regularly regarded as the most delicious snack and we couldn’t agree more. Plus, there isn’t a better party food than the potato chip. Just pour them in a bowl and let the festivities begin! With chips coming in more and more flavors all the time, you’ll never run out of ways to enjoy your favorite spuds with your buds. That deserve a few chip-chip-hoorays!


  • Potatoes are America’s crop

         Potatoes are grown in all 50 states! It makes sense that there should be a national day to celebrate the crop that can feed an entire country. We really do think this starchy, vitamin packed veg is all that and a bag of chips so pick up a bag, choose a recipe, and feast with friends!





Teacher: Potato Art (contest)

You are very creative and imaginative. So I suggest you to splash your imagination and use it to make something of potato, matches, paper, buttons and colourful clay!


Teacher: There’s no wrong way to prepare a potato, and the Internet (and probably your grandma) have a million and one recipes for you to try. Creamy and buttery or crispy and salty…So now, our students are going to present their potato dishes! And after that we will definitely eat them!

Presenter 3: Potato Salad

Appearance aside, part of the beauty of potatoes is their unparalleled versatility. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or cooking up a meal worthy of a Michelin star or three, potato salad is the right choice.

At the simple end of the spectrum, nothing beats a good potato salad. Simply chop and boil some potatoes; put them in a bowl; add a mixture of mayonnaise and wholegrain mustard; add some chopped spring onions. Stir it up and that’s it! A perfect accompaniment to almost any dish.

Presenter 4: Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes with Paprika

Without mash, the common sausage would be forever relegated to the confines of a floury bap. In mash, they have a true sibling. Everyone has their own preferences (dash of milk, skins or no skins, maybe some cheese, parsley, pepper), but this creamy variety, with cottage cheese, sour cream and paprika, adds a touch of class to proceedings.

Presenter 5: Cypriot Style Roast Potatoes

A nice twist on the standard roast. Fill a deep oven tray with halved (quartered if they’re large) potatoes and thoroughly coat them in olive oil and the juice of 3-4 lemons. Season with salt and a generous amount of oregano.

Boil the kettle and add water to the tray until the potatoes are half covered. This helps boil them in the lemon as they roast, giving a unique texture and flavour. Whack the oven up to full and leave till golden brown.


Presenter 6: Potato Gratin

For those who like their taters thinly sliced, this classic dish is the perfect meal. It combines potatoes (of course), cream, garlic and cheese to create a mighty creamy casserole.

Presenter 7: Salmon and caper jacket potatoes

No starch-based list article is complete without the best dressed of the potato dinners. Always easy to prepare, there are a million ways to top them, from beans to cheese to tuna to chili.

This recipe adds cream cheese and a flaked salmon fillet with capers for something a little different, perfect for a national potato day celebration (whatever that is).

Presenter 8: Fiesole Style Potato Dumplings

An amazing recipe to cook up for a brunch or a party at home with friends and family. Floury potatoes cooked and tossed in tangy tomato sauce. Serve them with a glass of wine and you are set for a great meal!

Presenter 9: Potato Nests

A yummy potato dish baked and filled with a yogurt and spring onion stuffing. You can prepare this potato recipe for family get-togethers and party.

Presenter 10: Patatas Bravas

Crisp fried potato chunks filled with spicy tomato salsa and home-made aioli are divinely delicious. Spanish tapas are small portions that can create a light supper or serve as great appetizers.

Presenter 11: Sausage and Potato Casserole

Time to slow down and enjoy life! A comforting casserole made with bell peppers, capsicum, potatoes, baked beans and sausages.

Presenter 12: Herbed Potatoes

Potatoes tossed with honey, herbs and garlic. This deliciously bake potato snack will be ready in a jiffy. Pair it with some tangy dip and you're all done for the day.


Enjoy your potato meal! Happy National Potato Day!
