COOK ROBUCHON'S FAMED MASHED POTATO

Lots of butter - that was late renowned French chef Joel Robuchon's secret to elevating the humble mashed potato.

His recipe, which he described in the French television programme Cuisinez Comme Un Grand Chef (2000 to 2009), calls for 1kg of potatoes, 200ml to 300ml of hot full-cream milk and 250g of cold butter.
