A LESSON IN MASHED POTATOES

A LESSON IN MASHED POTATOES

Mashed Potatoes are not only the essential comfort food on your Thanksgiving Buffet, but they are necessary for soaking up all of the delicious gravy! And while they look deceptively simple, they are an art to master. Here’s the low-down on glorious spuds (my best recipe is posted below too)…

MY VERY BEST MASHED POTATOES

These incredibly smooth and flavorful mashed potatoes are still my favorite. Wolfgang Puck taught me to throw peeled garlic cloves into the water when cooking potatoes; when the cloves are pureed with the potatoes, a subtle garlic flavor permeates beautifully. You can substitute sour cream for the crème fraiche if you prefer, but like the delectable richness and slightly tart flavor that comes from using the crème fraiche.

AMERICA'S BEST FRIED CHICKEN

AMERICA'S BEST FRIED CHICKEN

New Orleans chef Donald Link's understandably popular fried chicken is made just like his granny used to make in Lake Charles: seasoned, skillet-fried, dark, and so crunchy that each bite practically echoes through the large dining room at his restaurant Cochon. Letting the bird rest for up to 20 minutes after frying is critical, allowing the natural chicken juices to settle. In the meantime, you can make Link's Dirty Rice to serve on the side.
