Gnocchi

i ate Gnocchi once and i'm like wtf is it.
It was potato with flour to form pasta.
FYI, i hate baking / rolling flour, measuring stuff with a passion. I do love cooking though. falk.

potatos, just two, cause i know i don't want to make too much and have to eat it
all.




boil and just cut, shred or mash (not really mash but u grate it)



add flour


add 1/4 egg (make sure potato is not epic hot and cooks the egg)


roll dough


roll to like thumb size thickness and cut.


use ur form and make a mark (it's to pick up the sauces)

make a bunch

melt some butter (i spiced up my butter: pepper, spices, japleno, curry and other crap i can think of)

roll them around



add almonds

add cranberries

eat


not to bad, next time i'm going to flavor the potatos and go crazy with making them smaller.
i had other photos, but i uploaded the crappier ones.. oh well.

nom nom nom nom

Gnocchi, in my experience, is very black and white. It's all about proper preparation from the start to your final product in the end. There are different ways of serving gnocchi so you have to use the freshest ingredients to start with and how how low or high a heat you cook it in because it makes all the difference. Also, when you sprinkle olive oil, you have to try different kinds in order to please your pallete.

Don't try it at Antons (if that's what you meant to spell.) Go try it at Marcello's/Lombardo's or Chiopinos (if they still have it.) Go to a proper Italian restaurant.

6793026 - I've never had pan fried gnocchi before so this is new to me. What you made reminds me of German knodle.

Do you mean... Spaetzle? the german noodle/dumpling thing.

Gnocchi is actually pretty good if you have a decently flavored sauce. from my experience, try a sage/buerre noisette(brown butter), it turns the gnocchis into something quite special.
