In a large saucepan, combine potatoes and garlic. Pour over enough water to cover and set pan over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender.
Drain and return potatoes and garlic to cooking pot. Add buttermilk and mash until large lumps disappear. Fold in parsley, chives, salt, and pepper.
