  1. Peel potatoes, cut them into large chunks and place in a large saucepan/ casserole.Cover it with a lid, and boil, half covered, about 20-25 minutes or until tender but not falling apart.
  2. Meanwhile prepare the browned butter ( beurre noisette). In a small saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Once butter starts foaming, add the minced garlic cloves and reduce the heat to low. Continue stirring butter until its color becomes toasty brown. When you can smell nutty aroma,remove the pan from the heat and transfer the browned butter to a bowl immediately.

  4. The secret of the fluffiest, smoothest, lightest mashed potatoes is FOOD MILL.
  5. Set a food mill fitted with the medium die, on top of the saucepan. Add 1 cup of potatoes at a time to the mill. Once you mashed all the potatoes, add warm cream , salt and pepper; combine.
  6. Add the parsley and drizzle with browned butter. Serve hot.
