There are many regions that lay claim to the origins of gnocchi. While they are generally associated with northern Italy, the truth is that these dumplings are found all over the peninsula and in many diverse forms, made with a variety of base ingredients depending on where they come from: flour, corn meal, semolina, bread, chestnut flour, ricotta, or vegetables—from pumpkin to spinach to the classic potato.
We love so many variations here at Cibo Centre St, and we wanted to give you all the chance to try some different textures and flavours of one of our favourite pastas.
Join us from February 20th to 24th, during lunch or dinner and we will have the below features available for you to try during our first Gnocchi Fest. Make sure to check back every month to see what our next monthly festival will be
