Ingredients

  • 750g Rooster, Vivaldi or Desirée potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 100g butter
  • 100ml double cream
  • 300g tomme or raclette cheese, rind removed and grated

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the potatoes in a pan of cold, salted water. Bring to a simmer then cook for 8-10 minutes until completely tender (but not falling apart). Drain, then tip back in the pan, Cover the pan with a tea towel and a lid and let them steam dry.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, put the garlic and butter in a small pan and heat gently for 5 minutes to cook out the raw garlic. You don’t want to get any colour, just infuse the butter. Add the cream and warm through.

  • STEP 3

    Use a potato ricer to pass the potatoes back into the pan and put over a low heat. Beat in the cream/ butter mix and let everything reheat then gradually stir in the cheese until it has melted into the mash. Serve straight away.
