Ferry Building Mashed Potatoes

Adapted from Ina Garten's Foolproof.


  • 2 1/2 lbs. large Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • ¾ stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup Olio Santo or House Blend Olive Oil
  •  2 tsp. of Ferry Building Blend
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Steep the Ferry Building Blend in the milk. Peel the potatoes and cut them in 1-inch chunks. Place them in a large saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, or until very tender.

When the potatoes are ready, drain and return them to the saucepan. Warm the Ferry Building/milk mixture in a small saucepan until steaming. Add olive oil and butter to the potatoes, and with a hand mixer, beat the hot potatoes in the pot until they are broken up. Slowly beat in ¼ to 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture to make it creamy and smooth, reserving any extra. (You may need to add in more Ferry Building Blend if you do not add all the milk). Add 1 ½ tsp. salt, and black pepper to taste. If the potatoes need to be reheated, set over a pot of boiling water to warm, and add in the reserved milk if the potatoes have become too thick.
