Making gnocchi requires time, perseverance, and practice. There are a plethora of possibilities for things to go wrong. Potato gnocchi can be lightweight and tender when they’re at their best. Heavy, gelatinous, and/or mushy when at their worst. Using frozen ones are alright though, pair it with your sauce of choice, pesto, cream, Pomodoro, etc.

The appeal of this delicacy lies in its near impossibility of being nasty. After all, we’re talking about fat-crusted potatoes. Any recipe will be great if you can do that. It is light and flavourful. The more starch in the potato, the more crispy your Latke is.

The mellow flavours of leeks and potatoes suit each other so wonderfully in this potato leek soup. The texture of the soup is determined by your preferences; if you prefer a smooth texture, use a blender; if you prefer lumps of potato, use a potato masher.
