A classic creamy mashed potato that is the perfect side to almost everything. Try it with your favourite roast chook and gravy, red wine and garlic lamb shanks or red wine and garlic eye fillets (pictured).

3 large Potatoes
1 tbsp butter
½ cup thickened cream
Salt & White Pepper
Start by peeling the potatoes and cut them into large, even chunks. Place the potatoes into a large pot of boiling salted water and cook over medium heat until tender.
Once cooked, drain in a colander, and return the potatoes to the pan. Mash well. For a finer mashed potato, pass the potatoes through a potato ricer. Add the butter, cream, salt and pepper and mash well to combine. Adjust the seasoning to taste and add extra cream or milk if you would like a looser consistency. Keep warm until ready to serve.
