PREPARATION

Place the potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, warm the cream and milk in a small saucepan over low heat. Drain the potatoes, return to pot, and mash. Stir in the warmed cream and milk, the butter, salt, and pepper (if using).
Tip: To make this dish a couple of hours ahead of time and keep it warm, transfer the mashed potatoes to a heatproof serving bowl and place over a pot of simmering water. Cover the potatoes partially with the lid and stir occasionally. Add a little extra milk and butter just before serving to achieve the original consistency.
