A potato ricer makes fluffy, smooth potatoes without any work. Look for one in kitchen supply shops.


  • 1.5 kg Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut into small pieces

  • 1 1/2 cups 18% cream

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • chopped chives, for garnish (optional)


  • BOIL potatoes in a large pot of water until very tender, 15 to 20 min. Drain potatoes, then press through a ricer back into pot. Stir in cream, butter and salt until potatoes are warmed through. Season with fresh pepper.
