Gnocchi can be so many things - an elegant meal for entertaining or a time saving alternative to homemade pasta. In this class, you'll learn the technique behind making basic gnocchi dough, then transform it into a savory recipe and a dessert recipe. Add Panko-Crusted chicken and you have a meal!
Chef will teach you how to make Gnocchi dough and then use an Italian Gnocchi Board to shape the dough into the traditional pillow shape. Next cooking at your own cooktop, you'll prepare a Panko-Crusted Chicken Breast with a Thyme Butter Cream Sauce. Finally you'll learn that Gnocchi doesn't have to just be savory...it can be sweet as well.
