"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:
4 med. Red potatoes, scrubbed clean and cut into large chunks
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 t. sea salt
c. heavy cream
c. milk
6 T. butter
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 T. fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped

Directions:
Directions:
Combine the potatoes and sweet potatoes in a large pan. (Equal size chunks are important so they cook at the same rate.) Cover with cold water and add the sea salt. Bring to boil and cook until tender when poked with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the water from the pan. In a saucepan, heat the cream, milk, and butter over low heat; do not boil. With a potato masher or large fork, crush the potatoes in their pan, adding the cream mixture a little at a time. Season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Continue mashing until the potatoes are blended well. There should still be some chunks left, with the red potato skins dispersed throughout. Add more cream, milk or butter if necessary. Taste and adjust seasoning, stir in the parsley and transfer to a serving bowl.
