Home-made gnocchi

Home-made gnocchi are a traditional Italian recipe. Typical peasant dish, which is made only with potatoes and flour, they are good with any kind of sauce. It is said that less flour is used to make them, the more they will be good, because the potatoes flavour won’t be changed almost at all. With this cooking method, in the microwave, potatoes are cooked without absorbing the water that it’s normally used to cook them, so theywill  remain well cooked but at the same time dry inside. Let’s see what ingredients you’ll need to make them for 4 persons: 1 kg of potatoes 100 g flour Two pinches of salt Preparation -Wash the potatoes and dry them. Prick them with a knife several times, so that they will cook evenly. -Put them in a bowl and cook in the microwave at full power for about 8 minutes. Once done, prick again the potatoes with a fork. If they are soft in the middle, it means they are ready to go, otherwise put them back in the microwave for about 2 minutes and check them again each time, until they are cooked throughout. -Let cool them a little and peel them. With the help of a potato masher, mash them very well and on a clean work surface and spread them evenly to cool them a little bit. -Now add the flour a little at a time together with salt and knead until you get a dough that does not stick anymore to your fingers. -Cut a piece of dough and make a long “rope”, not too thin. Cut the rope  into small pieces of about 3 cm and spend every bit above the tines of a fork or above the appropriate wooden tool to scratch gnocchi. -Boil salted water and dipped gnocchi inside. When they will rise to the surface, they are ready to be drained. Toss them with the sauce of your choice. @Angelinaincucin

How to make traditional scotch eggs

Scotch eggs are a typical English really delicious food. They are nothing more than boiled eggs, wrapped in a soft minced pork sausage shell, which are then breaded and fried in hot oil, or baked. The authorship of this recipe should be attributed to the luxurious Fortnum & Mason London headquarter. They were prepared for the first time in the 18th century as fast food for the rich English owners who used to depart from Piccadilly to spend the weekend in their country estates, and therefore they needed to eat something quick but good before their departure.
