About this recipe: This smooth mash pairs beautifully with steak or roast beef for a dinner party. The hazelnuts add a lovely nutty flavour and the cider acts as the perfect balance for just a touch of sweetness. If you haven't got any hazelnuts, pecans or walnuts are a good substitute.


Serves: 8 

  • 900g sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 20g toasted, ground hazelnuts
  • 120ml double cream
  • 60g soured cream
  • 60ml or 4 tablespoons cider
  • salt and pepper to taste

  2. Mash the potatoes until smooth, then stir in the ground hazelnuts, cream, soured cream and cider. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
