The word gnocchi comes from the Italian nocchio, meaning 'knot in wood', and the same root for where Carlo Collodi got the name for his character Pinocchio, a puppet made from wood. Gnocchi have been a staple in Italy since Ancient Roman times, but have changed over time.
Our limited edition gnocchi are testament to this change. Hand-filled, they're like little, Italian doughnuts. We decided to launch this dish after a rapturous response from Evangelists on social media... we hope you'll like it as much as our little, pasta-loving team does.
"I really don't have a sweet tooth and was more than a bit dubious about this dish, but they really are bloody delicious." - Finn, our Head of Marketing
