POTATO GNOCCHI WITH CARROTS AND SAFFRON CREAM

When I was a little girl I used to help my grandmother Vittoria with my mother and my aunts. We staied all together around the kitchenā€™s table to prepare every kind of delicacy for the family sunday lunch. It was a very special moment.

I have all these wonderful memories in my mind and I think that exactly in those moments my passion for cooking was born.

I was very attached to my grandmother. And Iā€™m very happy to do today what she did her many years ago.

She was a cook: she warked in my grandfatherā€™s restaurant. He inherited it from my great grandfatherā€¦.it was Arturoā€™s restaurant. My great grandfather started with street food and then he bought this place to set up a really restaurant and bar.

The recipe that remind me more my grandmother is the ā€œpotato gnocchiā€.

She used to prepare the flour on the table and add in the centre the smashed potatoes. Then she started to mix by hand until she had nice pliable ball of dough; after that she took the dough, a piece at time, and roll it out gently with her hands until create rolls of about 3 inches. Then she cut the tubes of dough into pieces and me and my aunt used to press each pieces against tines of a floured fork, with our thumbs to roll them end of tines andĀ give theĀ particular form.

I donā€™t remember how many times Iā€™ve eaten them rawā€¦.

When my grandmother made gnocchi, it was always a happy day for me, because the love that put her into cooking was unique, and all the recipes she desiced to do where full of that loveā€¦.a very expecially ingredients!

Iā€™ve decided to prepare this vegan version, served with a delicious carrot and saffron cream…
