Traditional farmer's dish from the Swiss region of Valais

Featured in:



Kind of like a fancy hash brown, rosti is a pan-fried potato cake, often topped with cheese or a fried egg.

Originating from the Valais region of Switzerland, rosti is made from finely grated potatoes and fried until golden and crispy.

Traditionally eaten by farmers for breakfast you can now find it on the menu of many restaurants, in Switzerland and also sometimes in France.

The classic recipe is the Rosti Valaisanne, a hearty dish topped with bacon, fried egg and cheese, often served with pickled gherkins and baby onions.
