Cooking whizz proudly shares his recipe for the ultimate potato mash – but quickly gets savaged | The Sun

A ''LITTLE too soupy'' – that's how social media users have described one man's silky potato mash, which soon ended up getting totally savaged online.

Despite being a classic, a hearty dish of potato mash takes time and practice to nail – and one bloke, Andy Cooks, was convinced he had come up with the ultimate recipe.

According to the cooking enthusiast, believed to be from Australia, one of the main errors people make is peeling potatoes.

In his eyes, you should skip this step and instead simply cut them around in the middle before chucking in cold water.

Sharing the steps in the clip, the Aussie pro then seasoned them with a generous sprinkle of salt and put them to boil.

Once you've done the fork test and the spuds are ''tender'' to touch, drain them and set them aside to steam for a few minutes, Andy instructed.

This step, he added, should make the skin-peeling process easier.

Another tip Andy shared was using a ricer or a mouli grater instead of a hand masher.

''This will make your mash way more consistent,'' the cooking whizz claimed, also advising to use a drum sieve.

The one final step, he went on, was pouring in your hot milk with a generous dose of butter for extra creaminess.

He added that using cold milk will only ''seize up'' the spuds, making for a mess.

All chuffed with the mash, Andy then dished it up in a bowl, giving a few servings.


But whilst he may have been pleased with the recipe, people on social media were of a slightly different opinion.

Close to 3k TikTok users flocked to comments, where many complained about one aspect in particular – the consistency of the mash.

One mortified foodie, for instance, said: ''That’s just a puree.''

Another agreed, writing: ''Too watery.''

''Little too soupy,'' someone else chimed in.

Others, meanwhile, reckoned the relatively basic dish required too many utensils and plates.
