Irresistibly Creamy Mashed Potatoes

By Andrew Zimmern

Crème fraîche adds a creamy taste and consistency to these classic mashed potatoes.



Peel and quarter the potatoes.

Bring several quarts water to a strong boil over high heat. Salt the water generously and add potatoes. Cook until fork tender, about 15 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and put through a ricer or simply mash in a large bowl.

Stir in the butter, crème fraîche and chives. Season with sea salt and ground white pepper. Serve immediately or cool and reheat slowly on stovetop or in a 225-degree oven.
