Potato mash is a staple dish for many family dinners and special occasions. To achieve the perfect creamy texture, it is important to choose the right potatoes and cook them properly. Look for starchy ones like Russet or Yukon Golds. These varieties break down well when cooked, resulting in a smooth and fluffy consistency. Russets tend to result in a light and fluffy mash, whereas Yukon Gold has a naturally buttery flavour and produces a creamy, dense texture.

Boil the potatoes in salted water until they are tender. This usually takes around 15-20 minutes, depending on the size. Be careful not to overcook them, as they will turn mushy and fall apart when you try to mash them. To get the perfect texture, it is best to mash them while they are still hot. This allows the butter and mushroom sauce to be fully absorbed and yields a creamy and smooth consistency.
