    There are two recipes and both from "Cook's Illustrated":

    Cold Start French Fries done in a French/Dutch oven in peanut oil -- we and CI have tried other potatoes and, true to CI form, they don't work because of the starch and potato composition... it's a tricky balance.

    Creamy Mashed Potatoes (from their Xmas menu)... the Yukon Gold make it over-the-top... we've already debated the use of Idaho and Russet potatoes in mashed on the forum... I think it's a taste/consistency thing because these make you black out (in a good way).

    We promised our Aruba neighbour that I'd make both for her as she's a potato addict.

    And I hate what I cannot have... LOL

    Yukon Gold do not oxidize like regular potatoes when you shred them. My sister-in-law in Canada got me hooked on using them. I can peel and shred 10 pounds for potato latkas ahead of time and they don't turn black if I don't fry them quickly(for 10 pounds-an hour prep and 1-2 hours frying time).
