“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 epicurious.com. 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!”
