“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

For a couple of years now I have wanted to start a blog but somehow blogging always seemed like an intimidating endeavour. It wasn’t until recently when re-read The Great Gatsby that I told myself: If not now, when? And here I am, writing my first post.

Of course, my first post has to be about the most perfect and delicious latkes recipe I know. I followed Ina Garten’s instructions but made these crispy potato fritters gluten-free.

Latkes Potato Fritters Rösti


What you will need to make these mouth-watering latkes:

  • 5 small potatoes
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons of flour (I used gluten-free flour)
  • salt, peper and nutmeg to taste
  • some oil for frying


Mix together finely and coarsely grated potatoes with the rest of the ingredients. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add a tablespoon of the mixture to the pan. Cook them until crisp and golden brown on the outside. It will take about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the fritters from the pan and place them on a kitchen towel to soak up the oil. Et voilà, garnish your latkes with crème fraîche, dill, chives, smoked salmon, caviar or whatever you prefer and tuck in.

Comforting, delicious and easy to make. Let me know when you try them.
