Ingredients

1/2 cup garlic cloves, peeled (about 1 head)

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and quartered

Kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup heavy cream, half-and-half, or creme fraiche

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the garlic and oil to a boil, then turn the heat to low and cook uncovered for 5 minutes, or until the garlic is lightly browned. Turn off the heat and set aside. The garlic will continue to cook in the oil.
  2. Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large pot of salted water, bring to a boil, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are very tender. With a slotted spoon, remove the potatoes from the water, reserving the cooking water, and remove the garlic from the oil, reserving the oil.
  3. Process the potatoes and garlic through a food mill fitted with the medium disk. Add the reserved olive oil, 2 teaspoons of salt, the pepper, cream, and 3/4 cup of the cooking water to the potatoes and mix with a wooden spoon. Add more cooking water, if necessary, until the potatoes are creamy but still firm. Season, to taste, and serve hot.
