Homemade potato gnocchi


  • Boil the potatoes in a pot full of salted water, until they soften.
  • When ready, remove from water and drain.
  • Set aside in a strainer to allow all of the moisture to evaporate. The drier the potatoes the more successful the recipe will be.
  • Pass the potatoes through a food mill into a bowl. Use a spatula to help you. If you don’t have a food mill you can use a potato masher or a fork.
  • Set aside until slightly warm and add the egg yolks, 150 g flour, grated parmesan, salt and pepper.
  • Mix with a wooden spoon until the mixture is slightly thick and sticky to the touch. Add a little more flour, if necessary but the less you add the better.
  • Fill a pot with water and add some salt. Place over high heat and let it come to a boil.
  • Use a spatula to help you transfer the potato mixture into a piping bag. Do not overfill.
  • Generously dust a working surface with flour. Pipe out long strips of dough, until you have run out of mixture. Cut strips into 1 cm pieces with a knife.
  • Fill a deep bowl with water and ice. Brush oil in the interior of a 35x40 cm baking pan.
  • Lower the heat under the pot that is boiling so that the water is simmering. Add the gnocchi in batches.  As soon as they rise to the surface, remove with a slotted spoon and drop into the bowl with ice water.
  • As soon as all of the gnocchi are done, remove them from the ice water with the slotted spoon. Drain, pat dry with some paper towels and transfer to a bowl.
  • Add 5 tablespoons of olive oil and refrigerate until needed.
