I got hooked on gnocchi nearly a decade ago in Berkeley. One of my favorite lunch treats: Chicken and Gorgonzola Gnocchi from Gypsy’s on Durant. The potato dumplings tasted so light and paired so nicely with the sharp cream sauce.
When we moved into our first house in Richmond – I decided to make gnocchi. At the time, online recipes called for boiling the potatoes before mashing them up with flour and eggs. It wasn’t bad, but it could have been better.
About seven years later in Las Vegas- Mark ordered the best gnocchi entrÃ©e – ever. Imagine airy pillows of potatoes, sauteed in butter and melting in your mouth.
Finally – 2010 – I decided to try making gnocchi again. Our potato dumplings made me and my belly quite happy.
