Black Truffle Gnocchi
Nonna’s favourite dish
Gnocchi has been a staple of Italian living for centuries, and are various thick and small dough dumplings usually made from egg, potato and wheat flour and seasoned with herbs. Originating in the Roman era and spread throughout Europe, gnocchi is well known and beloved by many around the world.
The potato gnocchi has become a more recent staple, influenced by the introduction of the potato in the 16th century. From its humble beginnings, this ‘knot’ or ‘knuckle’ style dish is found in most Italian restaurants and is a favourite staple dish for many restaurants, including Pretty Boy Italian Steakhouse.
Truffle has been a European staple for generations. Known as the diamond in the kitchen, the truffle is held in high esteem in Italian, French, Middle Eastern and many other cultures, and is harvested from natural habitats. It has a distinct taste that when in the right portion, highlights all of the other flavours in the dish whilst having its own unique taste, which people flock from around the world to capture.
