Mashed potatoes are no ordinary side dish. What potatoes to choose for your mash? Depends on the texture and end result you want. This author doesn’t peel his potatoes before boiling them, to prevent them from taking on too much water. He peels them while they’re almost too hot to handle, then avoids both ricers and common mashers for the ideal texture. His recipes range from low-fat options to super-rich ones, and there’s a garlic recipe included as well.
