    Mash with Caramelised Leeks

    Soothing and kind, mash is the culinary equivalent of a massage.

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 1.5kg floury potatoes
    • 75g butter
    • 3 tbsp double cream
    • 3 tbsp milk
    • 500g Leeks
    • 1 tbsp brown sugar


    1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into quarters. Put them into a large pan of boiling, salted water and cook for around 20 minutes, or until soft.
    2. Meanwhile, heat 50g butter, the cream or crème fraîche and milk in a small pan until bubbling. Drain the potatoes, return to their pan and mash with the cream mixture, finishing with an electric whisk to achieve a perfect foamy cloud. Transfer to a bowl, cover with foil and set over a pan of simmering water to keep warm.
    3. Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a pan over a low heat; soften the leeks in it for 15 minutes, stirring. At the end, increase the heat and add the sugar at the end to caramelise. You are aiming for lightly browned leeks; scatter them over the top of the mash before serving.
