    yooper's Note:

    These are probably the most expensive mashed potatoes you will ever make! I read a review of a restaraunt in NYC that serves this dish, and was intrigued. Found this on A perfect side dish for a romantic dinner or special event, such as Valentine's Day. Note the recipe only serves 2, if you plan to make more, you may have to take out a second mortgage on the house!

      These are just a tad bland for my taste. I did use the heavy cream as suggested by the other reviewer and that made them much creamier. I also used the Yukon Gold (Butter-Brand) potatoes. The next time I make these I am going to add more tarragon and possibly some garlic & extra butter. But this is a wonderful starting point!
