In our second week of celebration moments with French Fridays with Dorie we are contemplating which recipe was a “never doubt Dorie moment”. Here were the instructions: “Choose the recipe that might not have been your favorite or even something you enjoyed making or even something you were skeptical about but which taught you a technique or gave you an idea or provided a lesson of some kind”. Honestly every recipe taught me something but one recipe was a stand out for me, Storzapretis (corsican spinach and marjoram gnocchi).
Storzapretis are like cheese gnocchi and I had never made gnocchi before. I did not know what quenelle was so I did a Youtube search for tutorials. I also found someone who had made the dish and blogged about it so I could get some ideas. This recipe taught me so many new techniques. It was very tasty and enjoyed by all. Honorable mentions were osso buco and duck. Which reminds me, I should make duck with fresh peaches now that they are in season.
To see what others thought go here.
