    Episode #42 - Gnocchi di Patate (Homemade Gnocchi)


    by thetuscangun

    "Gnocchi di Patate" (Homemade Potato Gnocchi) are yet another very humble treasure of Italian culinary tradition that can be eaten in its many different regional variations all across the "Bel Paese". In Italy they are often sold at local bread bakeries, along with many different kind of fresh made pastas and ravioli, and also are very well represented on the mass market in their prepackaged, usually much drier version. Because of the simplicity of the ingredients used in the preparation of Gnocchi, many believe it to be a dish that was mostly prepared in the country by farmers; truth is that, because potatoes were introduced in the European diet only after the Americas were discovered, the original roots of this dish are not really easy to trace.
