When Ripert was a child in the South of France, his aunts would make mashed potatoes for Easter dinner, stirring in spoonfuls of local goat cheese to add creaminess and tang. "The first time I made Thanksgiving dinner, 22 years ago, I knew that my mashed potatoes would include goat cheese and herbs," he says. "It's such a French dish, but it fits in effortlessly with the other, more traditional dishes."
