Gnocchi have a long and esteemed history in Italian cuisine, dating all the way back to Ancient Roman times. Although, in those days, before the arrival of the potato from the New World, they were usually made with a combination of flour and bread).
We serve our freshly made, gluten free gnocchi with a stripped-back, but incredibly beautiful, fresh leaf basil pesto. A staple of the Italian Riviera, and particularly the city of Genova (from which pesto alla genovese derives its name), basil pesto was a favourite of our founder, Alessandro, when he was growing up in the region. His nonna, Maddalena, served freshly made basil (made very simply using a pestle and mortar with just a few ingredients) with her own homemade gnocchi, inspiring this dish.
