Learning and Growing

I learned to make gnocchi. Miriam taught me. Also, this guy.

Basically, it's a 3-2-1 ratio. Three parts cooked, chilled floury potato (so Idaho, the kind you make baked potatoes from). Two parts flour. One part parmesan cheese. Mix.

Then you add yum: salt, pepper, nutmeg.

Then you roll it out ("like Play-Do!" said Iain), cut it into pieces and boil it. Easy peasy.

Fabio (see above) fries his in a pan with olive oil and chili flakes. I think I'd rather toss mine with brown butter and sage. But whatever.

THE POINT is that I'll be making gnocchi tomorrow. Yurm.
