These luxurious potatoes make the perfect partner for braised short ribs,filet mignon,or pork tenderloin.The secret ingredient is Brillat-Savarin—a triple-cream cheese similar in texture to brie.If you can't find it at your local gourmet cheese shop,you can substitute Explorateur,Saint André,or even mascarpone.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes in a large saucepan,and add cold water to cover by 1 inch.Add garlic cloves and a generous pinch of salt,and bring to a boil over high.Reduce heat to medium-high,and simmer,uncovered,until potatoes are fork-tender,10 to 12 minutes.Drain,and let stand at room temperature until potatoes look dry and chalky,about 10 minutes.

Step 2

While potatoes dry,bring heavy cream and butter to a gentle simmer in a small saucepan over medium,stirring occasionally,until butter is melted,about 5 minutes.Remove from heat.Press potatoes and garlic cloves through a ricer,and return to saucepan.Fold cream mixture into potatoes.

Step 3

Return saucepan to heat over medium-low.Add cheese in batches,stirring after each addition until cheese is fully melted and incorporated.Sprinkle with salt to taste.
