DiFara (Review)

This epitomizes the exact experience I had for my first DiFara's experience. I was there on a Friday night, March 28th. I really can't tell you how long I waited because the time went by so fast just watching Dom work his magic. To those concerned about Dom - he broke some ribs at home. He slipped and fell when he was in the bathroom.

Chestnut Gnocchi with Robiola Cheese Sauce

I made this on Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. Gnocchi is very easy to make as long as you remember not to overwork the dough and do not add too much flour. The chestnut flour I got from BuonItalia in Chelsea Market was made with wood roasted chestnuts and added a nice smokiness to the dish. I actually made them a day in advance and froze them. They held up perfectly.
