Making Gnocchi With Love

Our housemade Ricotta Gnocchi and magic sauces have been one of Elaia's signature dishes for over 10 years. The original recipe was citrus based but we've modified it over the years as we play around with the sauces.

Our Ricotta Gnocchi Recipe is simple but remember the key ingredient is the 'love' you put into it when you mix, knead, roll, pinch and cook it.

Pour yourself a glass of wine and make it with your favourite person. Have fun!

1kg good fresh ricotta cheese
100g plain flour
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients until well combined. If ricotta is really moist add more flour to bind.

Sprinkle the surface with flour.  Divide dough into two portions. Roll each portion to desired thickness to form a log.

Using a knife cut log into 2cm pieces. Give each piece a little pinch to form shape and place on floured tray. Make sure there is space between gnocchi.

When all dough is cut into pieces and placed on tray, refrigerate for 10 minutes so they can firm up.

Bring water to boil and blanche in batches. It should only take around three minutes or until they reach the top of the water.

Use slotted spoon to transfer cooked gnocchi to iced water. This will stop them from overcooking.

They are now ready to be cooked with your favourite sauce. Try pan frying with a little oil or butter as it gives the gnocchi a golden colour and buttery taste.

 

 

 Everyone remembers that famous scene from the Godfather III.  Now we all know how to make Gnocchi....
