Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes
November 14, 2012

Thanks for posting this video as I needed something simple to follow for my office Thanksgiving Potluck. I waited until about 11pm the night before the potluck, before getting this going, so a lot of the pointers like how to cut them in halves helped out in the process for boiling them. Along with what masher to get which I picked up the same style one Chef John recommended, and the other little pointers given, all a big help in keeping me moving along with the prepping, and cooking, and mashing (at the ridiculous hour I was cooking these!) I made just over 10 lbs so I got done about 1:30am! All around a big thanks for the informative video. Russet Potata!!! I love how he says it. This guy's personality is awesome. "What the hell is that?" ..."Two Laps ...Restrain Yourself" ! Thanks Chef John.
