    NOTE: 

    Some of the recipes described in this section contain raw or partially cooked eggs. Please, be aware that the use of uncooked or partially cooked eggs may cause illness if the eggs are contaminated with salmonella bacteria. Salmonella can cause very serious illness, especially among vulnerable people (elderly people, infants, pregnant women and people who are already ill). It’s important to be careful how you handle them (contamination may be present both inside and outside the egg) and how you cook/use them. Buy eggs from a reputable source and check that they have been produced to the higher standard (most of the eggs, nowadays, come from hens vaccinated against salmonella). In the internet there's a huge amount of information (food hygiene), so have a look at it before using eggs for consumption.

    Gnocchi are thick soft dumplings, made with potato and flour. It's thought that the name derives either from "nocchio" which is a knot in wood, or from "nocca" meaning knuckle. Whichever way, gnocchi are great accompliments to Italian dishes.
