About

searched for a long period the purple potatoes, very rare there in Italy. A friend of mine (@ValeDagata) helped me in my mission!! My violette potatoes come from France and also my cat was happy, the packaging became his new bed!
How you can see, I prepared both version traditional gnocchi with floury potatoes and purple version, to make a very fancy dish!
I dress this gnocchi with a very tasty butter sauce that i tasted this winter in London with lobster, then I found very versatile in different recipes.
