These little potato dumplings make a quick, filling supper dish and are readily available from supermarkets and online. But how do they compare? Here are seven of our favourites

Somewhat in the shadow of Italy’s national staple, pasta, potato gnocchi are an often overlooked Italian comfort food. Most varieties these days tend to be made from potatoes, but as with so many Italian foods, the regional and historical variations are manifold, and gnocchi can be based on all sorts of ingredients, from breadcrumbs and ricotta to ordinary wheat flour and polenta. In Roman times, they were made from a semolina porridge-like dough mixed with eggs, and can still be found in similar forms in several regions today. One of the best things about shop-bought gnocchi are their versatility – it takes very little to transform a packet into a hearty meal, as they go well with a multitude of sauces but are equally delectable with just a little butter and a light sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

About Italia!

This month we embark on our travels to Verona, the beautiful Veneto city immortalised by Shakespeare in his tale of star-crossed lovers. Whether the story of Juliet’s balcony is fact or fiction matters little, as we travel deeper to the city’s heart and its noble Roman heritage. Traditions of another kind are on our mind in Puglia; this time, the culinary variety. It’s a captivating land with its roots firmly in the soil, as you’ll discover. The restful public gardens of Florence are in the spotlight too, while this month’s Fast Culture tells a tale of mistaken identity or Renaissance ‘spin’ that’s not to be missed.
