Potatoes with a French Touch
A few spoonfuls of fresh goat cheese add creaminess and tang to regular mashed potatoes, as chef √Čric Ripert demonstrates in this French take on a classic American dish. The recipe calls for Yukon Golds, which have a wonderful flavor and a beautiful yellow color. And while the directions suggest folding in the milk, butter and goat cheese, you can also use a hand mixer to incorporate air into the dish and give the potatoes a whipped texture.
