Gnocchi: Using potatoes for ‘fancy food’

Sue and Mark Stinchcombe demonstrate how to make Gnocchi and say why they were so surprised to see it mentioned in a WW1 Cookery book!

Scroll down below the video for a copy of the recipe.

Members of Pershore WI were treated to a demonstration of WW1 cookery techniques by Judy Garner and Professional Masterchef winner, Mark Stinchcombe, and his wife Sue, at Eckington Manor on 20 March 2016.

The event has been filmed, thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, so that others can join us in the experience.
