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 potato gnocchi are made by hand using a traditional wooden roller, with the dough formed into little pieces & rolled on a special board to give them their unique shape.
We anoint our fresh gnocchi dumplings with burro di tartufo, or truffle butter. Made with shards of tartufo nero (black truffle) sourced in the Italian region of Umbria, the truffle butter melts down into a wonderfully fragrant sauce to dress the gnocchi. Aside from adding beautiful lustre, the butter sauce provides full on flavour. Whilst it isn't usually traditional to serve formaggio with truffle, we make an exception here to up the indulgence quotient. You might even choose to pair this comforting dish with a glass of bubbles, welcoming in the chilly winter evenings with glamour.
