Makes 16 to 18 frit­ters


Poke holes in the pota­toes, all around. Wrap in a sin­gle, damp pa­per towel. Mi­crowave for 5 min­utes on high. Flip over and mi­crowave for 5 min­utes more or un­til ten­der. Do the same for the sec­ond potato. While they are still hot, cut the pota­toes in half and scoop out the mid­dle into a 1-cup mea­sur­ing cup. You need 1 cup of packed, cooked potato. If you need more, mi­crowave the third potato to make up the dif­fer­ence. Run the 1 cup of potato through a potato ricer and smash with a fork. In a bowl, whisk to­gether the eggs. Add the potato and stir vig­or­ously. Stir in the corn, yo­gurt, salt, and pep­per and add 2 ta­ble­spoons of all-pur­pose flour un­til a thick bat­ter forms. If the bat­ter is runny, add the third ta­ble­spoon of flour. Spray a non­stick pan with cook­ing spray and heat over medium heat. Drop 2 tea­spoons’ worth of bat­ter in the pan for each frit­ter, press­ing down to make a round of 1½ to 2 inches. Fry un­til golden brown and then flip the frit­ters and con­tinue fry­ing un­til golden brown on the other side, about 1 to 2 min­utes on each side. Toss the toma­toes, bal­samic vine­gar, and olive oil to­gether in a small bowl. Sea­son with salt and pep­per to taste. Crum­ble or smear about a tea­spoon of goat cheese on a frit­ter and then top with tomato along with a basil leaf.

Sim­ple flo­ral ar­range­ments of sap buck­ets filled with crab ap­ple branches and fresh ev­er­green cut­tings make a sculp­tural and pas­toral state­ment.

For the frit­ters: 2–3 large rus­set pota­toes 2 large eggs ½ cup sweet corn, frozen 2 ta­ble­spoons non­fat Greek yo­gurt salt and pep­per, to taste 2–3 ta­ble­spoons all-pur­pose flour

For the top­ping: 1 pack­age cherry toma­toes, quar­tered 2 ta­ble­spoons bal­samic vine­gar 1 ta­ble­spoon olive oil salt and pep­per, to taste 1 pack­age herbed goat cheese fresh basil
