Giant Gorgonzola & Walnut-Stuffed Gnocchi with Sage Butter & Walnuts (v.)

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, as has cheese, beloved of the notoriously indulgent citizens of Rome and extolled by the author Pliny. Pliny enjoined his fellow citizens to delight in a blue cheese from Nemausus (Nîmes) in France, not dissimilar to modern gorgonzola, which, in an approving nod to ancient Roman decadence, we stuff our handmade gnocchi with.

We also include Italian walnuts, which, perhaps bizarrely, the Romans thought looked more like testicles, going as far as to consecrate the walnut tree to Jupiter, the king of the Roman gods, referring the nuts “glands of Jupiter”. We serve our Roman gnocchi with a sumptuous serving of burro e salvia - sage butter - and a sprinkling of beautiful walnuts.
