The Chef: Sara
The Menu: Freaking homemade gnocchi. Like, when Sara started this meal, she had potatoes, and when we finished it, we'd all eaten our fill of perfect little potato dumplings drenched in yummy marinara. Yes, this is why our editorial assistants are better than your editorial assistants. Sara also made a lovely mixed-greens salad with avocado and tomatoes, and toasted up some French Meadow Sprouted Grain bread with garlic and herbs. But really, she made gnocchi. In less than an hour.
The Goods: Maybe some of us have tried our darnedest to make gnocchi at home, and maybe it always comes out somewhere between rubber and watery mashed potatoes. Sara's little potato bites were the perfect texture, and totally delicious. Inspired by success (and by a much anticipated shipment that arrived today), we'll be using actual recipes all next week!
