“Want to make the potatoes in advance? You can make them the day before you want to serve them, simply cover with plastic wrap directly pressed on top of the potatoes and chill. The day of serving, transfer the potatoes to a pot over low heat. In a separate pot, heat some milk or cream and stir the hot milk or cream through until the potatoes are back to their best, creamiest consistency. Add chives and an extra pat of butter on top before serving because, why not?”

Peel and crush all the garlic cloves. Scrub potatoes and add to a large pot of cold water with half the garlic cloves. Generously salt the water and bring it to a boil. Cook potatoes until completely tender, approx. 30 – 35 min. Drain and set aside.

Using a potato ricer, mill the warm potatoes into a large bowl, discarding skins. Add butter, season with salt, and stir until butter is completely combined.
