This is another Gordon Ramsay recipe from “Home Cooking”. You parboil a pound of potatoes. Cool and grate. Meanwhile shred a leek and sauté until soft. Add the potato, 2 ounces grated Gruyere, seasoning and mix.
As usual, we changed the recipe a bit. I was distracted by some problem and the potatoes ended up fully cooked. I didn’t have time for them to cool so I threw them in cold water. The photo in the book shows the Rosti in a cast iron pan so that’s what I used. Not a good idea. A non-stick frying pan would probably work better or don’t flip the thing over but pop it under the grill/broiler.
It was quite a bit of work, used a lot of pans, and didn’t look the most appetizing; however, it passed the taste test. Delish. I think we would make smaller Rosti next time and prepare the potatoes the day before.
