Olive Oil-Whipped Potatoes

Chef John des Rosiers cuts potatoes into thin, uniform pieces so they'll cook quickly and evenly. We've called for a potato masher (which most people have in their kitchens), but for the fluffiest, most finely textured potatoes, use a ricer, as des Rosiers does in the photo above.
