Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch cubes. Put potatoes into a 6-quart stockpot and cover with water by 2 inches. Place over medium high heat. Bring water to a boil and allow potatoes to simmer until very tender. Drain water well and place potatoes back in stockpot. Insert the mixing beaters into the Cuisinart® Hand Mixer. Mix the potatoes directly in pot starting on speed 1. Increase speed gradually to speed 4 until potatoes are thoroughly mixed. Add butter, buttermilk, Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. * The tanginess of the buttermilk plays off the salt. Add salt in ½ teaspoon additions and taste, adjusting to your liking. Note: If a more subtle tangy flavor is preferred use ½ cup buttermilk and ½ cup whole milk.
