Reser’s Foodservice Brings the Fresh Fun.
Because all work and no play makes for lumpy mashed potatoes, Reser’s Foodservice has assembled a few fun facts to brighten your day.
Check back often as we’re having fun around here pretty often!
- The word “pothole” came from the Irish. After boiling a pot of potatoes, the chef removed the pot from the fire and placed it on the ground to cool. In the process of mashing the potatoes, the pot would be pushed into the ground. In time a deep hole – a pothole – would develop!
- When Sir Walter Raleigh first brought potatoes to the court of Queen Elizabeth I, there seems to have been a lack of communication. The cooks tossed out the tubers, and boiled the stems and leaves. Everyone who partook became deathly ill and potatoes were banned from the Royal kitchen for a long time.
- Because the potato was unknow to them, Europeans initially considered potatoes poisonous or evil due to their similarities to the nightshade family. Some members of the nightshade family include Mandrake and Belladonna, which are used for medicinal purposes. Germany’s King Frederick William realized that potatoes were a good food source and ordered peasants to plant and eat potatoes or their noses would be cut off!
