Bottles of Limoncello, pottery from Tuscany, or Venetian glass may be the best gifts to bring back from Italy, but they are heavy, breakable, and inconvenient to travel with. So what do you buy for all those friends who were thrilled with a set of cloth napkins from the market after your last trip?
Instructions for use: with your thumb, push each raw gnoccho very gently on the board for about half a roll until it curls over a little to make a shell shape, like in the photo above. And voila! Perfect gnocchi ridges. The recipe books say to use a fork to make the ridges, and of course, you could, because not everybody is privileged enough to have an actual gnocchi board.
Added bonus of this gift: your friends will need to invite you over to inspect and taste their creations, of course. Buon appetito!
