Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Potato gnocchi

    • PiaOC on April 23, 2018

      These gnocchi are light and soft. Have made this recipe several times with constistently great results. The only variation I make is to completely cool the potatoes after adding the egg yolk and before adding the flour. My mum used to say that cold potatoes absorbed less flour resulting in lighter, softer gnocchi. Of course, that leaves aside the whole debate as to whether gnocchi should be soft or firm! Personally, I prefer a firmer gnoccho for heavier sauces ie blue cheese.

  • Beef goulash

    • Dishyrishie on April 20, 2017

      Great 'make on the weekend and reheat/finish off' dish. Very tasty.

  • Lemon polenta cake
