  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. Slice off the top of the head of garlic. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake for about 45 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with lightly salted cold water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender. Drain, keeping a little cooking water to the side. Put the potatoes back on the heat for a few seconds to allow the cooking water to evaporate completely.
  4. Purée the potatoes into a coarse pulp using a masher. Press the bulb of garlic flesh out over the potatoes. Add the oil and beat with an electric mixer.
  5. If necessary, add some of the reserved cooking water to get a smooth purée. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Perfect served with meat, poultry and fish.
