Lemon Ricotta Gnocchi On-Demand Class

Hosted by Chef Tyler Vorce

Let's Get Cooking!

Cook along with Chef Tyler as he teaches you to make a restaurant-quality meal with just a few delicious ingredients. He'll show you how to hand-roll ricotta gnocchi with fresh lemon zest, make perfectly browned butter for toasty milk solid goodness, and fry crispy sage for crazy delicious flavor. This dish is so impressive yet simple, you'll want to recreate it for all your friends and family!

1. Make sure all the wet ingredients are fully incorporated before you add any flour. Once you add the flour, fold—rather than mix—the dough.

2. Gnocchi dough will naturally be very sticky—don’t panic! This is where working the flour comes in.

3. Cut the gnocchi to the same size to guarantee even cooking.

4. Add some freshly ground black pepper or a sprinkling of spices to your ricotta mixture to pack in extra flavor.

5. For added variety, make your favorite pasta sauce & divide your gnocchis between your signature sauce and your brown butter sage sauce.

6. This gnocchi also tastes great with added sautéed mushrooms or spinach.

Daniel's Wine Recommendations

WINE PAIRING NOTES

This gnocchi is rich, creamy, and the brown butter sage sauce is the ideal showcase for beautiful, aromatic truffles. For anything involving truffles I like to look to where they are hunted: France, Spain, Italy, Australia.

This dish is a great outlet for white wine! Try an Italian wine produced from the Trebbiano or Vermentino grape. Known for their herbality and freshness, they make for the perfect palate cleanser for the brown butter’s richness, wiping the slate clean to prepare you for another delicious bite. Similarly, Spanish Albarino with its notes of fresh meyer lemon zest makes for an excellent pairing.

Red wine your jam? There are two great choices that will not overpower this delicate gnocchi. Southern Italian Aglianico is nicely versatile, combining the flavor profile of Pinot Noir and Barolo, with high acid and a smooth, light to medium body. Or, try an Italian wine from the Barbera grape. With its low tannins but high acid, it’s the perfect pairing for the fresh lemon gnocchi.

Cheers!
