Mashed potatoes are one of the classic comfort foods and they're easy to make if you know how to do it. Great mashed potatoes should be light and fluffy, not sodden and runny nor stiff and gluey.

The way to accomplish this is by ensuring that the cooked potatoes are as dry as possible. And also, you don't want to overwork the potatoes. That means no puréeing them in a food processor. And of course, it helps to buy the right type of potatoes to begin with.
