How to Make The Best Mash Potato

Master the Art of Mash Potato

It’s the ultimate comfort food that’s as fun to eat as it is to make – the one and only, potato mash. Creamy and comforting, as well as packed with nutrients like vitamin C, B6, and fibre, potatoes are the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) when it comes to making sensational mash.

Over the cooler months mash pairs well with meats, vegetables, and pastry dishes – and even makes a delicious meal on its own. Mashed potatoes are like a warm hug from the inside. Its smooth, buttery texture and rich flavour are instantly soothing.

Now, let’s dive into the fun part – mastering the art of potato mash!

Here are some tips and tricks:

1. Choose the Right Potato: Not all potatoes are created equal. We recommend using Royal Blue (pictured), Cashmere Gold or Maranca varieties to get a delicious creamy result.

2. Butter Matters: Use quality butter for that unbeatable taste and texture. Add it while the potatoes are still hot to ensure a silky-smooth finish.

3. Creamy Goodness: Add a splash of milk, cream, or even sour cream for extra creaminess. Don’t overdo it – you want your mash to be flavourful but not runny.

4. Season to Perfection: Don’t forget to season your mash with salt and pepper. Get creative by adding garlic, herbs, or grated cheese for an extra layer of flavour.

5. Toppings Galore: The beauty of mashed potatoes lies in their versatility. Top them with gravy, cheese, chives, bacon bits, or even sautéed mushrooms for a gourmet twist.

6. Dietary Alternatives: For a lighter twist, try using olive oil or yogurt instead of butter and cream. You’ll get an amazing, delicious result!

7. Texture Matters: Use a potato masher for chunky mash or a potato ricer for super-smooth mash – the choice is yours.
