A true Thanksgiving showdown. The contenders: Ramsay, Ina, Oprah, Tyler Florence, the Pioneer Woman, and 2 Chainz.
They are the perfect food. Growing up, I was obsessed with mashed potatoes (still am, TBH) and could happily eat them for every meal.
This was my lineup:
1. Ina Garten: Because nobody can deny that Ina is the queen of simple, straightforward cooking ― and it just seemed right to include her in the lineup. (How easy was that?)
2. Gordon Ramsay: Because he won my last recipe showdown, and I wanted to see if he could keep the crown.
3. Oprah Winfrey: Because Oprah is a BOSS (duh) ― and in our recent taste test of her new comfort food line, her heat-and-eat mashed potatoes were one of our faves.
4. Tyler Florence: Because his method of cooking mashed potatoes sounded legit crazy, and I needed to try it out for myself. (Spoiler: He boils all the potatoes in heavy cream. )
