There's that about a harvest festival...
Mashed potatoes made with vegetable stock, garlic, and some really
nice, green EV olive oil kick booty.
In addition, I was just reading somewhere (Melissa Clark???) a recipe
for cod for which a side dish was brandade. This was confusing since
brandade is supposed to be _made_ from salt cod, usually milk-
simmered salt cod, potato and/or bread as an optional stabilizer,
lots of crushed garlic, and enough olive oil to form a thick, light,
fluffy emulsion when it's all pounded together. This was a rather
potato-rich brandade, served more or less in lieu of mashed potatoes,
to accompany the fresh cod which was the main ingredient.
I don't imagine that, since the salt cod element had been sort of
downplayed, omitting it entirely for some non-fishy application would
be such a terrible thing.
