When I was growing up, there was a humble little Italian take away joint that instilled in me a love for continental fare. And while the place had fantastic osso bucco, saltimbocca and carne pizzaiola – along with more common pasta and pizza dishes, there’s just one thing I kept on ordering: Gnocchi Gorgonzola.
Little soft, chewy balls of dough made – usually – from potatoes, Gnocchi are a treat. Generally eaten as a primo piatto before mains, I’d gorge myself on the things, not needing anything else. And the right sauce, topping or coating helps gnocchi transcend being a simple starter to being sublime. While they’re good with a bit of sage and butter, a bit of basil pesto or ever tomato based sauces, they’re just heavenly when smothered in a creamy gorgonzola; a buttery blue cheese with a sharp bite.
Gnocchi till I die.
