Basic Mashed Potatoes

We all love mashed potatoes. I find it to be very comforting. Many use an electric mixer but all they end up with is a smooth and sticky kind of a mash. In my humble opinion I prefer a potato ricer or a fork that keeps the potatoes nice and fluffy.


  • 1kg potatoes, washed, peeled and cut into big cubes
  • 25 gr (about) butter, at room temperature
  • ½ to 1 cup cooking cream, at room temperature
  • Salt to taste
  • A pinch of nutmeg


  • Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Salt generously bring to a boil and cook till very tender.
  • Drain. While still piping hot mash them using either a fork or a potato ricer.
  • Add the butter and cream, salt and nutmeg.
  • Mix till all is very well incorporated.
