  • 1kg potatoes, cut into large even-sized pieces
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled, left whole
  • 4 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche
  • large handful of soft mixed herb, roughly chopped (we used chives and parsley)
  • splash of milk (optional)


  1. Boil the potatoes and garlic in salted water until tender. Drain, return to the pan and steam-dry for a few mins. Mash well, then stir through the cre?me frai?che, herbs and some seasoning, adding a little milk, if you like, for a softer consistency.
