THE HISTORY OF GNOCCHI

Gnocchi's rich history dates back to medieval times. It was food often cooked for special occasions and big parties, to celebrate weddings and war victories. It is so integral in Italian history, that it inspired the festival character, Papà del Gnoco, and other colorful legends. 

Originally gnocchi was made out of bread, almonds, butter and cheese. Potato gnocchi are actually a more modern version that spread all across Italy as a result of potato imports from the Americas after their discovery. Today, potato gnocchi is a classic dish that is a foundation of Italian cuisine.
