Last autumn, the Vejle Municipality / Culinary Institute By Vejle Erhverv dedicates an entire week to celebrate the humble yet versatile potato, aptly named “Potato Week in Vejle.” During this special week, the company curates a series of engaging activities, with a particular focus on the children of Vejle city.
In the heart of Vejle’s local square, the Culinary Institute offers families the unique opportunity to dig up their own potatoes, which can then be magically transformed into crispy chips using a specialized machine. To add an element of friendly competition, there’s also a contest to see who can peel the longest potato skin.
These two distinct activities serve a dual purpose: firstly, they shine a spotlight on the potato’s nutritional and climate-friendly attributes, all while ensuring that the experience is immensely enjoyable for the children. Secondly, the Culinary Institute encourages everyone to incorporate potatoes into their meals not just during “Potato Week” in week 42 but throughout the entire year, given its status as a superb local ingredient.
