The back story to this recipe…

Liz was inspired to create this side dish after she had dinner with our family at the Ritz Carlton in Westchester, New York.  She was so amazed at how light and fluffy these whipped sweet potatoes were, that she just had to ask the chef for the recipe.

Well, the reluctant waiter would only tell her that it was made with mascarpone cheese and she would have to figure out the rest.

So, after making a few batches and testing the flavors to the best of her ability, she was so happy to tell us she finally got it!

These sweet mashed potatoes have been a staple dish for our Thanksgiving dinner for the past few years now, and boy how we all look forward to eating them.
