Duck Fat Potato Rosti Topped with Duck Confit (why the hell not…)
I don’t know if you’ve notcied but we’ve been trying to stick to certain theme every week, a basic driving idea for the content to be created by our pool of writers and myself.
This week we decided to tackle home entertaining, in all it’s aspects. For my part, i love to entertain at home, it simply makes me happy to have friends over, make some good cocktails and food that can be shared by all. I can either do it in a very thematic way, with the food i cook, or i try sometimes to make a menu using only new techniques and interesting flavours, and sometimes i just want a simple heavy dish that will make everyone think twice before eating, but that will always satisfy at the end of the night.
Here is my version of a Rosti (like a thick potato pancake), loaded with Gouda, cooked in duck fat and served with shredded Duck Confit.
This is one of those dishes you make when you don’t have much time on your hands without sacrificing the honesty of the ingredients.
I didn’t make the Duck confit, i just used the good ones from France that come in glass jars. If you want to make your own at home though, i suggest using this recipe which I’ve tried in the past. Also, i like to cook mine in the oven and get it crispy under the grill.
There is seriously nothing more beautiful than steam escaping a boiled potato.
