Adam Crawford, Director of Catering & Hospitality, The City Club of Cleveland

Chef Crawford’s Sweet and Savory Mash

(Serves 2; NOT gluten free)

1 Medium Yam(peeled and medium diced

2T softened Salted Butter

1T Maple Syrup

1T Cinnamon Sugar

1/2T Biscoff Cookie Butter

1/4 t cumin

1/4 t salt


1/4 Fuji Apple (small diced)

1t Salted Butter

Mike’s Hot Honey(drizzle/swirl to your preference)


1. Boil the potatoes in a pot starting with cold water over medium high heat until the potatoes, when poked with a fork, fall off of the fork.

2. Drain the potatoes in a colander and place in a medium sized mixing bowl.

3. Add all the ingredients to the potatoes and mash away with your tool of choice.( I use a slotted spoon)

4. Sauté the diced apples over medium heat to bring out the natural caramelization.

5. Portion the potatoes on a plate and garnish with the apples on top of the mash and drizzle the Honey on top.

6. Enjoy the depths of flavors and textures from the smooth and sweet/savory mash to the crisp bite of the caramelized apples to the spiced sweet hot of the honey the bridges all these elements together.

7. Be safe and stay healthy!
