Gnocchi Videos

A friend commented that it's gnocchi that she really wants to learn how to make. I can't blame her.  They're delicious and gnocchi with Gorgonzola is one of Greg's absolute favorites as well. They also happen to be one of the easiest pastas to make.

I spent some time watching how-to videos and found several good, short ones on how to prepare the delicious little dumplings. This one was perhaps the most comprehensive:


They also have the ingredients and steps nicely laid out on the website for easy reference.

If you've got the time, a couple of others that might be worth looking at can be found at these links:

http://vimeo.com/2121865 -- this one is the most similar to how we did it in class, with the exception that we used a food mill to get the potatoes really smooth.

Each one uses slightly different techniques and you might find one you prefer over another.

Happy Gnocchi Making! 



Quick tip: To add the nice crisp texture you see on the exterior of the gnocchi in this picture, we simply pan fried the finished dumplings after they'd been boiled and before adding the sauce.
