Mashed Potatoes

By Andrew Zimmern

Using a potato ricer is the key to silky smooth mashed potatoes. For the best flavor, be generous with the butter and black pepper.



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 well and place in a large bowl.

Melt the butter in a large saute pan.

Rice all of the potatoes into the pan with melted butter. Mix in the cream and stir until potatoes are smooth. Season salt and lots of black pepper. Serve immediately.
