GNOCCHI GNOCCHI HISTORICAL NOTES

In all likelihood, gnocchi is the first form of pasta used by man; in the shape of a small torn bite, composed of a mixture of water and flour, which could be millet, spelled or wheat, they were cooked in liquid or often fried, as tradition dictates in different Italian regions. In the Ledro valley, where traces of a bronze age pile-dwelling village were discovered, a dozen dumplings (small bites) of a dough of coarse-grained cereal flour with stone millstones were found.

They appeared at the Sforza court in celebrations for military victories or at wedding dinners; they were based on breadcrumbs, milk, chopped almonds, and Lodi cheese and were called mosquitoes. On some occasions the mosquitoes underwent chromatic transformations, adding some vegetable ingredients in the dough such as spinach. The broth became golden, synonymous with the wealth of the house, with the addition of eggs and saffron.

In the seventeenth century, however, they underwent a slight change in name and preparation: they were called malfatti and instead of almonds and bread flour, water was added and, in richer families enriched with eggs. The last dumplings that appeared in our kitchen are those of potatoes, whose history began when the potato was imported and grown in Europe.
