Answer

** Definitive **
Name: Steve, Epsom
Qualification: Iím friends with Michel Roux Jr
Answer: Hash browns have a little bit of chopped onion in them and is fried, and the rosti is purely grated potato fried in hot oil.
(James OíBrien: But Iíve eaten at Michelís restaurant La Gavroche and Iím fairly sure hash browns werenít on the menu! Why did you talk to Michel about rostis and hash browns? Did you have some potato-based banter?)
