What a delicious and simple meal. It came together swiftly, was exotic and flavourful. Sautéed peppers and onions with skewered chicken...Fantastic!

Mashed Potatoes

Serves: 4-6       Total Time: 1 Hour


  • 2 untreated, 12-inch cedar planks, soaked
  • 8 large Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled
    and quartered
  • ½ cup table (18%) cream
  • 2 tbsp. softened butter
  • 13 cup chopped fresh parsley and/or fresh chives
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Step 1
In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook potatoes until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes. Place in a colander and drain well. Set aside for 10 to 15 minutes to allow excess water to evaporate.
Step 2
Meanwhile, combine the cream and butter in the pot and warm slightly.
Step 3
Return the potatoes to the pot and mash together with the butter-cream mixture, seasoning with the chopped herbs and salt and pepper. Take care not to over-mash — a few lumps are desirable.
Step 4
Set aside to cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate until needed. (These steps can be done the day before serving.)
Step 5
Preheat grill to medium-high 450ºF.
Step 6
Form the chilled potatoes into uniform, level, mounds on the pre-soaked cedar planks.
Step 7
Roast over direct heat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are golden brown and have formed a crisp crust.
Step 8
Carefully remove the smoking plank from the barbecue and move potatoes to a heatproof platter, or directly to plates to serve immediately. Garnish with extra chives.
Happy Grilling!
