I WENT a little nutty with the camera this weekend. I aimed the lens above scenes around my house - no styling, no making things look pretty - and shot a birds eye view. This was the kitchen while I was rolling out spinach and ricotta gnocchi. If you've bought the recent Good Taste magazine, it's the dish on the cover. Go look. How could you not be enticed by that?
I love gnocchi. With basil or rocket pesto made from what's in the pantry and what's pulled from the garden, it's a summer staple. This summer I'll be rolling my own, made with gluten-free flours. Sigh. Gluten free is Boring. That's right. "Capital B" Boring. I tried a commercial brand of gluten-free flour but thought the gnocchi a little dense. I'll whip up a batch of this flour and have a crack with it.
Any tips or tricks for substituting gluten-free flours for the regular stuff? And what about pointers to sites listing gluten traps for the uninitiated. This stuff is in everything. Is there a list?
