I should have known better than check your blog, Jerry. I want to eat that gnocchi and some of those breadsticks! But I am fasting today in prep for my colon test tomorrow... Ok, that is TMI (too much info) but your blog is always loaded with delicious entries.

I should have known...

Jerry this is my husbands absolute favorite dish. Thank you. I'm going to make this soon. Can you tell me what gnocchi do you buy and where? Trader Joes?

Jerry

Eden - sorry about the drool factor! *smile* Good luck with your test today.

Barb - we do not have Trader Joe's here in Canada (sigh). I have to do field trips when I am in the US! Most of the grocery stores here carry ready made gnocchi in a vacuum package. I am sure that TJs would ahve it.

I've made it before. It isn't challenging - just more work than I wanted to do on Sunday with all of the gardening and stuff to do.

Hi Jerry those gnocchi look fabulous. I can't wait to get back to Italy again 36 more days! I start to dream about it in color.

Hi Jerry

I love your site, great photos.

In case Barb reds this, yes TJs has pkg. gnocchi which is very good. Cost Plus Work Market also has it. They have tiny gnocchi which is nice to use sometimes.

Questions regarding the Grissini:

1. Is '00' flour the same as Wondra?

2.I'm having a party in a couple of weeks and was going to make 2-3 batches. You metioned these taste good the 2nd day; would you recommend I save time and bake these the day before or the day of the party?

3. I like my grissini slim, will there be more yield if they're thinner or were yours pretty thin?

Thanks!! Ciao

Amy

Oh, that looks wonderful.

I made homemade gnocchi exactly once. *grin* Now when I happily pay for them, I appreciate each and every one.

Jerry

Deb - I ahve reached the dreaming phase too. This will be followed by the panic stage!

Linda - 00 flour is a semolina flour like they use for pasta. I know that you can get it at Whole Foods. They get soft overnight. i think that if you made them ahead of time you'd want to heat them up a bit to retore the crisp crust. If you rolled them thin there would be quite a few more. These are almost like breadsticks - not the crunchy grissini that you can buy.

Jerry

That is my feeling exactly Amy. I did NOT enjoy making gnocchi at all and will gladly pay for those others have made. *smile*

Kalyn

Sounds delicious. I like the idea of gorgonzola paired with marjoram a lot. I have some marjoram in my herb garden but it's sadly under-used!

Jerry

Kalyn - I like this recipe so much that i have planted some marjoram myself.

Love the blog, always enjoy reading it. I really like these gnocchi. I just made a gnocchi with choux pastry for the first time and it was incredible. Come take a look if you have a chance and let me know what you think. http://cookingquest.wordpress.com

Thanks so much!
