Is there an updated version of Julia Child's 1964 Garlic Mashed Potatoes or does it "Stand the Test of Time"?

I’m making this for a dinner party of eight to serve with Coq au Vin.

Stripped down Recipe follows:

For the garlic purée:

Step One
Peeled garlic cooked in butter to very tender but not browned,
Blend in flour over heat,
Blend in boiling milk S&P,
Purée and simmer two minutes,
Hold covered,

Boil baking potatoes, Rice, back to heat to dry, add butter and S&White Pepper
Hold the potatoes warm and vented till serving is near,

Combine above two with more butter and hot cream, add parsley, Serve.

Thanks to all,
