mashed potatoes with wild garlic recipe picture

Potato Puree simply ingeniously prepared

Here I would like to present you my Potato Puree recipe. A light, airy puree that comes creamy on the plate.

My vision of a perfect mashed potato is very close to the recipe of Joël Robuchon, the famous French star chef, who ennobled the mashed potatoes into something deliciously special as a dish.

In Germany, mashed potatoes are an everyday meal, which is usually served in every quality as a side dish. A dish that is usually underestimated in this country! A well made puree made of fresh potatoes is in its elegant simplicity a fine taste experience, which demands the palate but not overtaxed.

The puree is quickly prepared. I’ll show you how it goes and you succeed perfectly!

By the way, I answer cooking questions via the comment function. For now already good success and a good appetite!
