1. Salt Bake Potatoes For The Perfect Mash

The French call it “Pomme Puree” and the secret to velvety mashed potatoes is to bake your spuds on a layer of salt. It draws out the moisture and leaves the inside light and fluffy so they can absorb more butter, cream and good stuff.

2. Rice Rice Baby

A simple potato ricer will help you create the creamiest mash the quickest.

3. Infuse Cream

Fat is the best vessel for flavor. Simply toss in a handful of woody herbs like rosemary or thyme and half a garlic head when heating the cream to add to the mash.
