I love to cook and think I'm rather excellent at it
So, I'm going to try and grace this forum with more of my posts and presence!
Okay, seriously though, there was a thread recently on doctoring pancakes and if anyone has done so and if so, what have they done?
Well, I want to ask the same thing about Mashed Potatoes. I find that Mashed Potatoes can be the most boring item on a dinner plate, or they can be an excellent way to set a dish off the right way. At my restaurant, we serve meat courses over mashed potatoes (those that come with Mash) so that the sauces mix with the potatoes and really make them wonderful.
Things that I've typically done at home to make my mashed potatoes a little more fun are:
(This is excellent when the potatoes are served with a plate full of big flavors, especially sauces. The Ginger helps cleanse the palate)
Cummin & Cayenne
Chevre Goat Cheese
Any one else do anything fun with your mashed potatoes?
