13 Nov '17 — Therapeutic dinner making
“The general Roman consensus seems to be more or less 2 ¼ pounds potatoes, 2 whole eggs, and 3 ¼ cups of flour, give or take the odd very strong opinion.” - My Kitchen in Rome
As cheesy as it sounds, I was transported to Italy making gnocchi this evening. No longer was I in the cold rainy Pacific Northwest. For a brief hour I was cooking in a Roman kitchen. That’s how Rachel Roddy’s book makes me feel.
I didn’t have much in the kitchen so I flavored the gnocchi with rosemary and garlic butter. An hour earlier, I prepared caramelized onions to go with it. The dish was topped with shaved Parmesan.
My mom wanted me to make gnocchi. She mentioned it several times last week so I finally did it. Glad she pushed me into it…
Shout out to my husband who took photos while my hands were super sticky!
