chunks are important so they cook at the same rate.) Cover with cold water

a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the water from the pan.

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 un til 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.
