Spotlight – The Potato Project


23 Nov 16

The Potato Project is the one-stop shop for a proper jacket potato. Really.

You can keep it simple with classic toppings like butter, cheese or chilli or you can be adventurous and try any number of original flavour combinations. We have it on good authority that the sweet potato with mozzarella, tomato and pesto is a winner but you’ll have to step in and see for yourself.

The mastermind behind this spud-tacular restaurant is Ksenia Karpenko and she gave us the low down on what makes The Potato Project work so well.

Tell us who you are and what you do.

We are the baked potato company. We make simple, yet sexy, mind-blowing jacket and sweet potatoes.
