Last year it was bread baking and this year it’s homemade pasta. A silver lining of the pandemic is how adventurous we’re being in the kitchen. We’ve invited Jonathan Edgerton of The Gentleman Farmer in Maine back to our demo kitchen to show us how to make homemade gnocchi so we can add another recipe we thought was too hard to attempt to our list of cooking accomplishments.
