Serves 4


  • 6 Maris Pipers, peeled

  • 150g-200g salted butter

  • 300ml double cream

  • 75ml whole milk


  • Cut the potatoes into evenly sized chunks and put them in a pan, with a handful of salt and then cover with cold water. Set over a high heat and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked.
  • Drain the potatoes into a colander and cover with a tea towel. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • In a small pan, melt the butter with the cream and milk.
  • Push the potatoes through a potato ricer back into the pan they were cooked in. Once all the potato has gone through the ricer, add about half of the dairy and beat vigorously over a very low heat with a wooden spoon. Once combined, add the remaining dairy in stages, beating after each addition. All potatoes are different, so be prepared to add more milk or cream if they need loosening further.
  • Check for seasoning and adjust as necessary.
