    32 Michelin Star Chef Joël Robuchon owed a lot to his signature dish: Pomme Purée. 2 months Skillshare for free : skl.sh/frenchguycooking11
    Help me reach out to Chef Eric Ripert to get some feedback on my Mashed Potatoes skills ! Whatever he answers, good or bad, I'll post it on this channel 😱... His Twitter and Instagram accounts both are : @ericripert. Please behave 🤞🙏😂
    I challenged myself to recreate what's considered by many the world's best Mashed Potatoes. In the end, here the shortlist of ingredients : 1 kg fingerlings potatoes, 1-1.5 cups whole milk, 250g unsalted butter. The rest is just pure technique.

La Ratte potatoes are nearly impossible to find in South Africa and might as well cost an arm,a leg and a kick in the teeth 😩.

I followed this recipe down to a T. I got the Ratte potatoes, I cooked them skin on, I used the highest quality butter and milk I could find and used the exact same ratio as in the recipe, I steamed the mash before I gradually added the butter and milk and of course I put them through a sieve at the end. But I still only get a flavour, that can at most be described as "good", more like "alright", but definitly not "phenomenal". Any ideas what I did wrong, or what I could do better?

Alex. I hate to disappoint you but I do not like the French style of mashed potatoes. I like mine mashed with just butter, but mashed not turned into baby food. Having said that I love your channel and I love your enthusiasm. Continue et bon courage!

Hello Alex, congrats et thanks for the quality of your content on youtube ! You do a great job, but in this mash potatoes case, it would have been interesting to seek the very best products, to point out and remind people that you can't make good food without good products... no secrets ! For example, you could have used Jersey cow's milk (OMG!), some farm butter, and early (rattes) potatoes. The result would have been even more incredible, I'm sure. Still, keep going !!

This puree might be good, but did you ever try Laonai Yangyu (Grandmas potatoes) from Yunnan province in China? The sour note of pickled mustard leaves, the slight tingle of sichuan pepper and a generous helping of homemade garlic/chili oil. Blew my mind the first time i tried it, and still does.

I'm a french man watching another french man, who's teaching me how to make the perfect mashed potatoes, even though I know I will never make anything close to that and just buy my purée premade "just add milk and heat it up". I feel like I'm wasting my life right now. And I'm loving it.

À good way to cook your potato for a delicious purée is to cook it on the oven with rock salt ( and of course to add a ridiculous amount of salted butter we all agree on that )

Hi Alex, first things first, I really enjoy your videos and admire your hard work and creativity. I had a sad realisation during this video that nearly all the chefs and experts you consult with or refer to are mostly men, in a lot of videos, not just this one. Not saying that's your fault, but it's a sad realisation that women just are not taken seriously or don't achieve the same success as men in this industry, even though, let's be honest, in most households it's still the women song the cooking. If you want your mashed potatoes to taste like potatoes, please consult an Irish Mammy 😉

So, I'm a midwestern American girl and I fully understand that country cooking and French cooking are two WAY different things. But I can't wrap my head around this potato puree that Alex is making and calling it mashed potatoes. We make mashed potatoes for breakfast, lunch, supper and desert ;here in the heartland. So, we kind of know of what we speak (well for our region anyway)! Any mashed potato that's not firm enough to stack up on your plate and make a mashed potato mountain will not do. It must ... and I mean MUST be hearty enough to stand up to good old fashion milk gravy ... the life line of any midwestern or southern folks. But I do get the part about the butter. We use tons of butter in our mashed potatoes, too. They're a match made in heaven. Just my 2 cents worth!!

Was it important to peel them after boiling them in the end? or it was just the potato type that mattered?

Yes. When you boil with skin on they leave less flavour in the water.
