  This is in reply to a request which was posted earlier asking for
 a rosti recipe from the interlaken district of Switzerland. I'm not 
 sure if this is what Michael was looking for but the recipe is easy,
 tastes great and is something different you can do with the humble old

 Firstly, you will need about four medium to large potatoes (this is
for four people). Peel them and boil them for ten minutes (the time
may vary depending on the size of the potatoes, however the potatoes
should remain hard. It's important not to boil them for too long.)
Allow the potatoes to cool slightly then wrap in plastic wrap and
refridgerate for at least one hour. Grate the potatoes (they should be
quite sticky) add salt to taste then pat into a flat round and fry in
butter for about 5-10 minutes on each side or until they are golden
brown. Slice into wedges and serve.

 I find that if you make them into smaller individual patties they are
easier to turn when cooking and look nicer when served.
