When enriched with butter and cheese, mashed potatoes are transformative. At Wayfare Tavern, Chef Tyler Florence takes mashed potatoes to another level with the addition of Burrata. Why didn’t I think of that?! It’s brilliant, really; and makes perfect sense. Burrata is a stretched curd cheese filled with cream and straciatella (bits of mozzarella). The cheese gave the mash a mega creaminess and almost stretchy, potatoes aligot-like consistency. The chives were not just there for presentation, its slight crunch from the salamander oven lifted up the mash. I could’ve easily ate the whole thing. But, I was nice enough to share.
