How can you tell if a recipe is good?

How can you tell if a recipe is good?

In fact, you cannot really tell it until you make it – until you have made it several times.

How can you tell if a gnocchi recipe is good? Why gnocchi?

I have chosen gnocchi because there are hundreds of different recipes, it is a classic staple of Italian cuisine, and if the recipe is good, it is delicious. (According to Massimo Montanari, Professor of Medieval History at Bologna University and scholar in Food studies, gnocchi has been a favorite recipe since the Middle Ages.)

In this post and in subsequent posts, we will study the various recipes and procedures for making gnocchi that you can find online. We will see that some recipes are good because they include photos of key steps, some are good because they explain how to vary the recipe depending on qualities of the key ingredients, and some are good because they are bad, because they show you what not to do.

Millet, pepper & aubergines, smoked scamorza (or smoked tofu).

Today I visited my mother and she said a farmer donated her some vegetables and she wanted to share them together with me. I went home and opened the kitchen cabinet while wondering: “so, what do I cook today for my vegetarian daughter?”. I took a pack of millet, then reminded of some leftovers of smoked cheese in the fridge. I thought, if I cook everything well, I can get a great taste from this almost “for free” recipe (in short, I just paid the millet, cheese, salt, pepper and oil, how much is it? 4 €? maybe less).

Marta said it was tasteful, delicious, light and original; what is more, I was happy to see her approval.
