Home Made Potato Gnocchi
September 24, 2012
The gorgeous Blue Zhar potatoes I used to make this gnocchi worked a treat. I picked them up a little while back when I visited Georgie’s Harvest stall at South Melbourne Market. She recommended them as the best type of potato to make gnocchi.
Other recommendations I have read for types of potatoes to use for gnocchi include: Toolangi Delight, Otway Red, and Nicola.
I adore potato gnocchi but was scared to make it myself in-case they ended up like little rubber bullets. In my university years I shared a house with a friend. My friend had a boyfriend with a mum who used to send us food over with him. She regularly sent him with her home made gnocchi. It was heavenly and I was devastated when my friend decided to break up with the boy. No more gnocchi for me. I have been seeking gnocchi as good since then.
I made a chorizo and vegetable sauce for my gnocchi so that I met the evening vegetable quota!
My favorite sauce is a tomato, garlic and herb based sauce…next time I visit the market that version is on the menu.
