Paris mashed potato

Paris mashed potato




  • 1kg floury potatoes, peeled
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 100g butter
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning


Cut potatoes into even sized pieces. Cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Salt.

Simmer until tender and drain into a colander and leave for steam to rise off for 2-3 mins.

Heat milk, cream and butter in the microwave for 1-11/2 minutes.

Pass potatoes through a potato ricer or mouli into a bowl and start to whip in the hot cream, milk and butter mixture a little at a time until all ingredients are combined and light and fluffy.

  • This is called Paris Mash because it’s a particularly French version of mashed potato – loads of butter and cream!
