The Cooking Chook does gnocchi – Eeeeeek!

I’ll admit that I have the odd foodie fear. I’m reasonably adventurous when it comes to cooking/baking new dishes, and I love a challenge but there are dishes that will give the heebie-jeebies. They usually take the form of either the simplest of all recipes, or really, really difficult recipes. The really, really difficult recipes you could understand why I would be a little scared about attempting them, but it’s the simple recipes that do my head in the most. I call these recipes ‘sleeper’ recipes, and gnocchi falls into this category. You look at the ingredient list and method, and it all lulls you into a false sense of security. What could be so hard and scary about a recipe that involves 2 ingredients and 4 steps in the method? Everything! The biggest issue with gnocchi is making sure it doesn’t end up dense and stodgy, kinda like chomping on hard bubble gum – ewwww. How do you do this? Use a proper Italian Mama recipe! Read more…
