Luisa Silvia’s attention this weekend is focused on a traditional recipe ” Gnocchi alla Romana ” with deep roots in Italian culinary history. It first appeared in Piedmont and then moved fast south to Florence where it was met with great appreciation. Caterina de` Medici introduced the recipe in Paris calling it ” Gnocchi alla Fiorentina “. From Paris to Roma through diplomatic channels the name became “Gnocchi alla Romana” . Finally in Bologna, Pellegrino Artusi adds the recipe to his famous ” La scienza in cucina e l’arte del mangiar bene ” spreading the news all over Italy.
