Yukon Golds are sweet and a bit waxier than your standard Russet mashing potato, so they hold up a bit better in a mash, leaving some chunks to enjoy.
Their golden flesh is richly flavored and fairly firm and moist, with medium starch content. A perfect compromise between dry, fluffy russet potatoes and moist, waxy varieties, Yukon Golds are incredibly versatile. They're superb for mashing and in soups and chowders, and they're great for roasting and sautéing, too.
