    Drain potatoes and garlic in a colander. Add cream, butter, and duck fat to same saucepan; place over low heat and stir mixture until butter and duck fat is melted. Return potatoes and garlic to pan; add salt. Using a potato masher or hand held blender, mash potatoes until light and fluffy.

Note: Potatoes may be prepared up to 24 hours before serving. Cool, cover and refrigerate potatoes before reheating. Chilled potatoes may be placed in a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip, piped attractively onto a microwave serving plate and heated in the microwave oven just before serving.
