Q: Mario, what is the secret to keeping gnocchi light? Mine are too dense and heavy.
Work the flour in to the potatoes when they are still warm and do not knead them other than just bringing the dough together.
Q: Carla, I post most of my food pix on FB and constantly get asked by my friends if I can teach them how to cook. Should I start holding small cooking classes in my home? I’m just amazed at how many people don’t cook!
That would be awesome. I cook and do demos so that I can inspire people to get into the kitchen. THAT is what truly makes me happy. I love it when I teach someone a technique and the joy it brings them is a gift to me.
