Idaho Preferred Cooks Up Food at The Fair


By Michelle Costa

FILER, ID (KMVT-TV) - Folks at the Twin Falls County Fair literally got a taste of Idaho.

Monday is the official day for Idaho food.

Idaho Preferred hosted a live cooking demonstration.

And after wards the audience got to eat the food.

Everything cooked came from Idaho.

Most of it from the Magic Valley.

"Today's the day of Idaho food and we're trying to convince everyone that something on their plate should be grown in Idaho. the cooking demonstrations show just how easy that is because we have such a wide variety of foods that are grown in Idaho that its really easy, especially during this season to be eating all of our foods from Idaho,” said Leah Clark, Idaho Preferred Program Director.

Idaho produces around 180 commodities.

At the Ag Pavilion, about 56 of them were on display.

The Idaho Legislature is calling 2011 the year for Idaho food.
