An exclusive recipe to make your mouth water…

Mashed Potato Recipe by Philip Contessini

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Ingredients for 6 people
• 1 kg of BF15 or Benji Potatoes
• 1 dl of semi-skimmed milk
• 400g cold soft butter
• 3 tablespoons. in s. Half-cream hot milk
• salt
• black pepper (optional)

little advice First of all, get a potato masher, not a potato masher. The important thing is to have a mixer with a whisk.

Peel the potatoes, put them in cold water, and cut them into very small cubes. Heat the milk and cut the butter into pieces. To cook the potatoes, put them in a large enough pot, cover with cold water (no more), cover (important) and start cold and over high heat. This type of cooking will cook the potato pieces too quickly so they don’t absorb too much water. When the potatoes are soft, prick them with a knife to check if they are done. Drain, then pass through a potato masher without waiting (heat is important). Immediately add the equivalent of 3 tablespoons of hot milk and mix, whisking little by little, but quickly. Add the cold butter pieces. Always leave the salad bowl (or other bowl) on a heat source (bain marie, stove, etc.). Add hot milk if needed, but be careful not to make the puree runny. Salt to taste and pepper to taste. Place the mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, and stir at high speed for 40 seconds to aerate the puree. This step is very important. Dump it in the presentation plate, serve it hot and…be careful, you might fall because…it’s not good at all, but it’s not good at all, and even, no…I’m kidding!
