4 Levels of Mashed Potatoes: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - an amateur, a home cook, and a professional - to make their version of mashed potatoes, just in time for Thanksgiving. Once no 'tater had been left unsmashed, we asked a food scientist to review their work. Whose mashed potatoes were worthy of seconds?

Check out the level 3 recipe on the ICE blog: https://www.ice.edu/blog/mashed-potatoes-with-smoked-hay

    Never boil potatoes, cut them and steam them . Way better than boiled potatoes and keep some of the nutrients
