Heat the olive oil and butter in a large saucepan. Once the butter has melted, add the onion and bay leaves. Sauté for about 5 minutes until the onion has softened, but not coloured.
Meanwhile cut the potatoes into rough 2cm pieces then add to the pan along with the garlic. Stir to coat in the butter then cover with a lid. Cook over a low-medium heat for about 8 minutes stirring once or twice to prevent the potato sticking to the base of the pan.
Stir in the mustard and pour in the stock, then bring to a simmer and cook with the lid off for 12 minutes until the potatoes are completely cooked through.
Remove from the heat and take out the bay leaves. Cool slightly before adding the milk and then blend well in a food processor or liquidizer until completely smooth.
Season to taste and serve hot, garnished with chopped chives and a twist of black pepper.

Make use of the new season crop to create this deliciously fresh and light dish.
Recipe courtesy of Olivier Limousin, l’Atelier de Joel Robuchon, created as part of an eight course potato tasting menu specially for Potato Week 2012.
This creamy mashed potato recipe is born from traditional Irish cuisine and is packed full of fabulous flavours brought to life by the combination of cheese, bacon and egg.
This is a lovely alternative to making a classic fish pie and such a comforting dish to eat. Feel free to swap the fish to suit your preferences or in fact you could buy fish pie mix which many supermarkets sell at the fish counter. Served with some green vegetables, this is sure to become a family favourite.
