Aligot (Potato Purée)

April 14, 2021

ingredients:
1 clove garlic
12 ounces unripened soft cheese (traditionally cantal)
1 pound potatoes
2 ½ Tablespoons butter
1 ¼ cups heavy cream
pepper, salt

instructions:

  1. Crush the garlic. Slice the cheese very thin, or shred it if you wish. But do not grate it.
  2. Wash the potatoes carefully and boil them unpeeled in salt water for 30 minutes. Then peel and mash them immediately. Stir the purée over a low heat to dry it somewhat.
  3. Mix in the butter, cream, garlic, salt and pepper.
  4. Add the cheese continue to stir the purée. You will gradually obtain a homogenous threading mixture.
  5. Serve immediately, since this purée cannot wait.

This distinctive purée will particularly enhance a roast beef dinner.
