Mashed Potatoes

Don’t be wrong about this: mashed potato, or “Purée” (in French) is not for babies! Even Michelin-starred chefs like Joël Robuchon, named “Chef of the Century” by the Gault Millau guide in 1989, gave back some cachet to this side dish! You’ll find the chef’s recipe for making purée in this The Guardian’s article, and below, some yummy lunch ideas from our community.
