Preparing for two

Gnocchi Ingredients

The Gnocchi are not so difficult to make, but I recommend purchasing double amounts of the ingredients. That way if you run into trouble, we have a chance to start over.

12.5 oz/350 g. potato ​(about two large) – Yukon gold, King Edward, Russets or any dry, starchy potato.

Before the class, boil unpeeled potatoes for 40 minutes until a toothpick can be inserted easily. Keep potato covered and warm for the cooking class.

3.5 oz./100 g. (0.8 Cup) all-purpose flour, plus extra to be kept available during the class

Directions

Gnocchi Directions

  1. Starting the class, we peel off the skin of the potato. Pass through a potato ricer or masher or press with a fork while still warm - try not to overwork the potato, keeping it as light as possible.

  2. Add the flour and the egg yolks, season with salt and pepper and nutmeg.

  3. Gently mix with the fingers, and then combine into a dough.

  4. Roll into sausage shapes around 1 inch/2 cm thick. Cut into 1 inch/2 cm short pillow-shaped gnocchi and store on greaseproof (or parchment) paper in the fridge until ready to cook.

Cheese Sauce Directions

  1. Heat the butter and melt in the saucepan.

  2. Add the flour and cook for 3 minutes until it is a light brown color.

  3. Add the milk and keep heating. Boil 3 minutes after the mixture reaches the boiling point. 

  4. Add the cheeses and keep mixing rapidly. Remove from the heat and keep mixing until cheeses are melted and the sauce is smooth.

Final Directions

  1. Put the gnocchi in the pot with salted boiling water; cook until they float.

  2. Remove and put into the sauté pan, where you toast the gnocchi with the sauce.

  3. If the sauce is too thick, add some milk or cooking water.

Serve on a plate with fresh black pepper.
