Rösti

Hello all! I'm already falling behind with the posts. This entry marks the close of our 6th full day here in Switzerland. One more day here tomorrow (to hit the ski slopes - wish us light falls and strong bones), then it's off to our first city in France: Lyon!


This is an amazing traditional Swiss lunch Kate and I shared in the tiny town of Gruyere, Switzerland. It's called Rösti. Very simple, and also very delicious. The large crock of grated potatoes was about the size of my head. Maybe a little larger. It seemed huge at the time. 

The potatoes had been mixed with some onions, and possibly a little butter or animal fat before being crisped in an oven. You could have the dish just like this (au natural) or opt for the addition of smoky ham and a fried egg. Obviously we went for the latter option. Our Rösti was accompanied by a couple cornichons, pickled onions, and a tiny Swiss flag - how patriotic. The crispy potatoes were perfectly seasoned, and fun to eat - buried beneath the pile of ham and egg. I joked (partly very serious), that I'd like to have one of these for breakfast every morning. Although I probably wouldn't be around very long, I would be a very happy person.

About Cooking Curiously...

This is a place for food nerds to roam free. A place for me to document my tales and experiences concerning that wonderful substance known as FOOD. I find it incredible how many forms it can take, and the impact it can have on our lives. Hopefully, I can make some of those forms tangible here. The following posts will range from travel stories to new dishes and recipes, some restaurant reviews, maybe just an interesting food thought. Regardless, this is meant to be an open forum for both myself and any followers. Feel free to post and comment. Enjoy!
