Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 Ounces milk
  • 4 Tablespoons black truffle butter
  • 2 Tablespoons crème fraîche, optional

Directions

Place the potatoes in a medium pot and cover with water by 1 inch. Add 1 tablespoon salt and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook the potatoes at a simmer for approximately 15 minutes or until very tender.

Pour the cooked potatoes through a strainer and leave to drain 5 minutes. While the potatoes drain, warm the milk.

Transfer the potatoes to a bowl. Whip with an electric mixer while gradually adding the warmed milk. Whip in the butter and crème fraîche if using. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Truffle Shopping Tip

Truffle Cooking Tip

French cuisine is renowned for slow-cooked sauces, however a quick pan sauce will do just as well; after sautéing a piece of meat or fish, remove it from the pan, deglaze with brandy or wine, finish with a touch of butter or cream and voilà!
