When I arrived in the United States, one of the things I missed most was the food from my country, especially the food that my mom used to make. Upon noticing my feelings of nostalgia, an Argentinian friend taught me how to make from scratch one of my favorite dishes that my mom used to make for me: homemade gnocchi. I remember the day we made it; it was snowing out and we got together with my friend and her kids to scatter flour everywhere, while we laughed and drank ‘mate’. Gnocchi is easy to make, even though it takes some time, but it is a lot of fun to make with the kids.
Culinary experiences are family moments that turn into unforgettable memories, strengthening bonds and offering an identity through culinary culture.
I hope you decide to prepare this recipe - one of my mom’s specialties - which obviously has the Italian seal, a feature of most of the traditional recipes from my native country.
