"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" LdV

Each time I go skiing in Austria, I asked for a rösti. They served it with lots of cheese from the Arlberg area and it is a feast, especially after one full day on the slopes! The first food my children asked when we come back is a...rösti ! Very easy to do, I accompany it with a fried egg which explain the name I have given to it. A reference to the croque-Madame, a croque-Monsieur but with a fried egg on top! A favorite with the children, needless to say...

Wine pairing : Entre-deux-mers (White) from Bordeaux.
