- Origin: United States
- PRINT RECIPE:
Some might consider the potato a European crop seeing as how widely used they are there (and especially in the British Isles!), but the potato definitively originated in the Americas and was not introduced into European cuisine until the 16th century by explorers returning from the Americas. Regardless of origin, this all-time favorite recipe reaches new levels of dreaminess with the addition of Huilerie J. Leblanc Hazelnut Oil or Walnut Oil.
Make mashed potatoes using yukon gold potatoes with the quantities from the mashed potatoes recipe from Joy of Cooking or any cookbook, but do not add milk or butter.
Use the chicken stock for liquid and add crème fraîche to taste.
Just before serving, add to taste, either hazelnut oil or walnut oil instead of butter and finish with fleur de sel.
