Sud Forno Gnocco Fritto Meal (October 2020)
We are back this week with a new box from Sud Forno's Executive Chef Giovanna Alonzi! This week Giovanna is taking us to Emilia-Romagna to fry our own gnocchi fritti! Alongside this delicious fried dough, you'll be enjoying salumi, burrata, tagliatelle in a sausage and porcini sauce and a fresh kale and fennel salad.
Like always we'll have fresh Sud Forno bread made by our Head Baker Luca Rotatori and we'll end the meal off with a hazelnut and pear tart. Choose the multi-course meal on its own or pair it with a selection of wines from our wine agency Cavinona!

Remigio 100 Lambrusco Grasparossa: This classic Lambrusco is an off-dry semi-sparkling red wine that exudes freshness. On the nose the wine is earthy with notes of ripe red raspberries and violet that carries through on the palate.
2019 Preta Falanghina IGT: Pale yellow with green reflections. On the nose there are floral notes with Mediterranean maquis, white and green fruit. Round, balanced, with fresh acidity and persistent fruit taste.
2018 Barbera d'Alba DOC: Ruby red, with aromas of fresh red and dark fruit. Medium bodied, light tannins and supporting acidity make for a Barbera that is very easy to drink. From the same vineyards as Barbera d'Alba Superiore, 1,500 bottles were produced from this vintage.
Gnocco Fritto E Salumi: Remove the gnocco fritto from its vacuum bag. Cover it with a plastic bag and let it sit at room temperature for at least an hour. Once the gnocco has proofed, arrange all of the cured meats and burrata on a nice platter. Heat oil in a small pot over medium heat to a temperature of 170F. Cut the parchment paper around enough gnocco fritto to be able to fit into your pot. Place the parchment with the gnocco in the small pot with the gnocco facing the oil. Fry the gnocco for 2-3 minutes and flip. Remove the gnocco fritto from the hot oil. Dab it on paper towels to remove excess oil and season with salt. Remove the parchment from the oil and fry the next batch. Serve with the salumi and burrata.
Tagliatelle ai Porcini: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. In a pan heat the porcini ragu. Boil the tagliatelle in salted water for three minutes. Strain the pasta from the water and add to the ragu. Add parmigiano and cook for 1 more minute and serve.
Insalatina di Finocchio e Cavolo: Toss all ingredients in a bowl with citronette.
Torta di Nocciole e Pere: Heat the torta in the oven at 350F and serve over crème anglaise.
