TRADITIONAL POTATO GNOCCHI WITH BUTTER AND SAGE DRESSING

In Italian we have a saying which goes: Giovedí gnocchi, venerdí pesce, sabato trippa (Thursday gnocchi, Friday fish, Saturday tripe). Gnocchi was traditionally a dish which was cooked and eaten on a Thursday to store up a starchier, more calorific meal before the conventionally Catholic meat-free Friday.

NEW FACE OF SPURTLE FOOD

Hi! My name is Giada Canderle and I’m an Italian expat currently living in Edinburgh.

My food blog and a separate series of recipes starting in the Spurtle over the coming months are the result of my growing passion for cooking and baking (and eating!) over the last 10 years.

Food has been in my blood since I was a little girl, with big family meals being one of the fondest memories of my time back home. I see food as a way to bring people together and to express our love and care for others.
