About This Class

Today is your lucky day: Italian moms usually don't share their cooking secrets outside the family....but my MAMMA ISA has been kind enough to leave me her personal cookbook and here I am sharing with all of you her recipe to make amazing POTATO GNOCCHI WITH BASIL PESTO.

IF YOU LIKE PASTA YOU'LL ADORE POTATO GNOCCHI. They are a very tasty and healthy alternative to pasta, they are extremely easy to make and they can be seasoned (just like pasta) with a lot of different sauces. I've decided to choose Basil Pesto because it is one of the most superb combination that have ever been invented in Italian Cuisine.


In my MOM'S COOKBOOK I found all her tricks to prepare the recipe in the traditional way. You'll learn:

1) how to give to PESTO the perfect LIGHT GREEN COLOR,

2) how to give POTATO GNOCCHI the ideal consistency they need,

3) the only traditional way TO SERVE the dish adding a couple of NECESSARY INGREDIENTS and this is a secret mostly UNKNOWN outside of ITALY.

Are you ready??? MANGIA, MANGIA!!!!
