Re: Rosti recipe

You just have to buy good festkochend potatoes, boil them, ideally store overnight, then peel and grate them onto a pan with some butter. Salt, press them a bit in the process, roast on the second side with some more butter added, and voila, you can go to Migrationsamt to fetch your swiss pass.
The only trick is that the layer should not be more than 2-3cm.

Re: Rosti recipe

Lots of rösti recipes at the Restaurant Brasserie Anker Bern site.

Click here for a video originally from SwissInfo (I am linking to this version as SwissInfo loads awfully slowly on my computer).

Lots of useful information in this thread that I started some time ago: Rösti in the States: choice of potatoes .

Berner Rösti

Re: Rosti recipe

That sounds like a tasty breakfast, Wolli.

Anyone know anywhere in Basel which serves this (and is tasty, and doesn't involve a call to the IMF when the bill arrives)?

Here the recipe for Züri Gschnetzlets mit Röschti

Zürcher Geschnetzeltes mit Rösti (Zürich) Zutaten
4 EL Zwiebeln, geschält, gehackt
160g Champignons, geputzt
560g Kalbsschnitzelfleisch, hangeschnetzelt (3 mm dick)
Salz
weisser Pfeffer aus der Mühle
1 EL Mehl
2 EL Erdnussöl
3 EL Butter
2 dl Weisswein
4 dl Rahm

800g Rösti aus gekochten Kartoffeln (nicht zu weich)
80g Butter
2 EL Erdnussöl
1 KL Salz
2 EL Korinthen


Zubereitung
Vorbereitung für die Rösti: Für die Rösti - wenn immer möglich - die Kartoffeln schon am Vortag kochen (nicht zu weich) und ungeschält kühl stellen.

Zubereitung Rösti:
In einer grossen Teflonpfanne die Butter und das Erdnussöl erhitzen (das Erdnussöl kann auch durch Schweineschmalz ersetzt werden).
Die Kartoffeln mit dem Salz mischen und hineingeben.
Die Rösti locker verteilen, bei nicht zu hoher Temperatur ca. 10 Minuten die eine Seite braten. Die Rösti wenden und die andere Seite ebenfalls ca. 10 Minuten braten.
Die Rösti müssen knusprig goldgelb gebacken sein.
Die Hitze nun auf ein Minimum reduzieren (Stufe 1) und die Rösti warm halten.


Zubereitung Geschnätzlets:
Das Geschnetzelte mit Salz und Pfeffer aus der Mühle würzen und in zwei Teile teilen.
Eine grosse Teflonpfanne mit der Hälfte des Erdnussöles sehr gut erhitzen, einen Teil des Fleisches beigeben und kurz anbraten.
Das Fleisch aus der Pfanne nehmen, warm stellen.
Mit dem restlichen Fleisch ebenso verfahren.
In derselben Pfanne die Butter erhitzen, die Zwiebeln beigeben und dünsten.
Die in Scheiben geschnittenen Champignons dazugeben, mit dem Mehl stäuben und vermischen. Weisswein beigeben und zur Hälfte einreduzieren.
Den Bratensaft vom Fleisch und den Rahm dazugeben und alles zur gewünschten Konsistenz einkochen.
Mit Salz und Pfeffer abschmecken.
Das Fleisch in die Sauce geben (nicht mehr kochen) und mischen.

which is served in many places in Zürich, even if I prefer it with noodles and in case you get offered Züricher Röschti and Bärner Röschti take the Bernese variant as it simply is far better


In Basel, you might try

Jeez. If you do try that, make sure that your volume isn't at 100%. It nearly killed me!

Rosti recipe book

Years ago (late eighties or early nineties) my wife and I were browsing the shops at Zurich airport and found a small booklet (in English) of rösti recipes published by the Swiss Potato Commission. 30 pages, 12 recipes.

I wondered whether these recipes were available online or in print. The Restaurant Brasserie Anker Bern site that I linked to in an earlier post on this thread seem to "borrow" a lot from that booklet. But where was the booklet itself?

Today I found it, only in French or German. Under their Carnets de recettes (French) or Rezepthefte (German) they have my little booklet. After all these years, same cover, same number of recipes, same number of pages!!!! The price is right, CHF 2.50.

Browsing their books (Livres or Bücher) they have a couple of rösti books, one of them trilingual (German, French, English).

Finally, let us not forget our own Jack's book, Cooking with Potatoes.

Disclaimer: I only have booklet, have never seen any of the books.

Is that place that expensive ?

Well I always had the impression that Basel is expensive , even more expensive really than Zurich. I always preferred Mulhouse .... the less expensive and less arrogant neighbour. Really nice. And Mulhouse sports some supreme Maghrebi (Morocco/Algeria/Tunisia) restaurants

I was meaning the very loud cockeral crow when you enter the website.

I've not tried the restaurant yet, but I'm tempted now. The menus look reasonably priced (but maybe I've been in CH too long )

I would like to hear about an actual try. I some 3 years ago with a group of aviation people went to the "Mutz" in Basel but that one is now in renovation. A nice place, and we in our co-operative were still "on budget" after that

So, please report after your test !

Re: Rosti recipe

One trick:

Don't over cook the potatoes in the water! Stop them a little before the point the are cooked. This way the Rosti still tasty and firm in mouth.

Another: make your first try with a ready made mix, and then try to do it completely by yourself....

From another thread:

As for cooking vs. raw potatoes...Everyone in Switzerland has an opinion on this subject...Many swear by the raw method, while others think it is a good idea to cook the potatoes ahead of time. I think if you are using a baking potato, then start raw. If you are using a boiling potato, then consider cooking ahead of time. I always take the middle ground (quite Swiss of me) and partially cook the potatoes (with skin on), cool them, then peel, grate, season and cook.

Jack
I have been following jack's advice and half cooking the potatoes, makes them easier to grate than fully raw.
