Paul McCartney Shows You How to Make Mashed Potatoes (1998)

10 minutes of Macca making mash. That’s what’s on the menu today.

The clip above was shot back in December 1998, only eight months after Paul McCartney lost his wife Linda to breast cancer. Devastated by the loss, McCartney stayed out of the limelight for most of that year. And only with this show did he start entering public life again. A chance to remember Linda, an opportunity to experiment with this new thing called the internet, the show let Paul field questions from fans worldwide, reminisce about Linda, and make a recipe from her vegetarian cookbook, Linda McCartney on Tour: Over 200 Meat-Free Dishes from Around the World. The demo is pretty hands-on. He’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. It’s also comical and a joy to watch. And watch, you will.
