I was recently interviewed by Jo Mackay from Bookings For You. In addition to the great questions she had for me, Jo asked me: Do you have a recipe that you’d be happy for us to feature on our blog? My answer was my version of a dish from the Amalfi coast I have been tweaking: ‘Ndunderi.
‘Ndunderi is a dish I fell in love with fairly recently after being reminded about it by Pasta Grannies, the book. Unlike potato gnocchi, which I grew up with, ‘ndunderi are ricotta gnocchi that are prepared ‘Sorrentina’ style, i.e. baked with layers of cheese (smoked scamorza in this case). I find the use of ricotta instead of mashed potatoes very interesting, as it gives a similar fluffy and slightly grainy texture, but it’s much more forgiving in terms of controlling the water content – only requiring that the ricotta is well-drained.
Please head over to Bookings For You and check out the recipe!
