Best Potato Puree 🫶🏻 I think the French do it best, and after a lot of researching throughout the years, I came to this recipe and its been my go to for YEARS! Tips: •Using a Tamis strainer ensures the SMOOTHEST possible potatoes. Doesn’t mess with the starches so it doesn’t make them gummy. Totally worth it. •Cube the potatoes small so they are easier to pass through the strainer. •Always save a bit of potato water, enhances the potato taste. •Add the potatoes into the warm (never boiling) cream. •Add the cold butter little bits at a time so they get super creamy. •Use high quality butter and don’t skimp on it. •Always boil them in salted water. •To reheat always do it bain marie. Ingredients: •2 lb yukon gold potatoes (peeled and small cube). •3/4 cup heavy cream. •1/3 cup potato water. •1 lb + 2 tbsp unsalted butter (cubed). •1 garlic clove. •1/4 cup creme fraiche. •chives. •black pepper. •salt. Directions: 1. Bring water to a boil, and salt heavily. Make it taste like the ocean. 2. Add the cream to a pot with the garlic clove and set it on very low heat until it is warm. Turn it off and let it infuse. 3. Boil the potatoes until fork tender, strain but reserve some potato water. 4. Add potato water to the cream and turn heat on again, on low. Remove garlic. 5. Pass the potatoes through the tamis strainer directly onto the hot cream. 6. Keeping the heat on low, add the butter little bits at a time until fully incorporated. Finish with creme fraiche. Turn heat off and salt to taste. 7. Top with chives, black pepper and flaky sea salt. #potatopuree #potatoes #easyrecipes #comfortfood #makeitdelicious #damnthatsdelish #potatorecipes #fallcooking

Arayes are typically a levantine street food, I believe they are originally from Lebanon but it was something my Syrian dad made often so I added a bit of my Mexican flair and they were 🔥.

Directions: 1. Place your ribeye in the food processor and process until kinda ground. Add in spices, onion and parsley. Process until fully ground. 2. Cut your pita into triangles. 3. Add in the meat inside the pita triangle and press evenly with a spoon. 4. Preheat a cast iron for 2 min on high. Lower to med high and add olive oil. 5. Brown each pita for about 2-3 min per side or until fully golden and sort of crispy. 6. Mix the tahini, yogurt, garlic, lemon and salt. Thin it out with a bit of water. 7.
