INGREDIENTS FOR 3 PORTIONS 500 gr (17.5 oz) of potatoes (the best are Desiree potatoes, with red skin and yellow pulp; the second option would be brown skinned potatoes; the last preference would be white/yellow potatoes -don't worry if this is all you have, you will still get a good result!) 300 gr (10.5 oz) of white flour 2 free range eggs Salt Turmeric and nutmeg (optional) Sauce & cheese to serve your gnocchi with (for example: tomato sauce, pesto or browned butter with sage)
WHAT TO DO BEFORE THE CLASS You will need to pre-cook your potatoes before the class, and leave enough time for them to cool to room temperature before the class:
Preheat the oven to 170 C (340F) Put a bit of rock salt in a baking tray (if you don’t have it, skip this step) Prick the skin of the potatoes all over with a fork Place the potatoes in the tray and bake them for 45/60 minutes, until very soft Remove from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes Clean the surface where you will knead the gnocchi dough (a wood, stainless steel or marble surface works best. We recommend working directly on your bench/counter top)

What a fun afternoon. As enjoyable to make the paella, was being in the experience from others from different countries. Alberto is a great instructor and with a small group was able to check each one's progress throughout so no one was left behind.
Paella class with Alberto was amazing.
He is not only taught us how to make seafood paella, but also provided interesting information about different products and culinary techniques that we definitely will use.
The online gnocchi class with Alberto was a fun, tasty, interesting, and was a great opportunity to celebrate a family event from far. Thanks again and all the best!
