Reviews for Potato Puff
"Very nice, light potatoes."
"It's pretty and great taste! I made this for our new year family dinner as a side and everyone loved it."
"This is so pretty! My family loves it. It will collapse gradually; but don't worry, it will taste just as good. Besides that, it's usually gone right after it gets to the table."
