Method of Preparation:

  • Place mashed potatoes in a dough mixer and mix for 1 minute.

  • As the gnocchi rise to the surface, remove from water and dump into the iced bath prepared ahead of time (50% ice & 50% water).
  • Drain gnocchi and coat with oil.
  • Place gnocchi into container until ready to use.

Four cheese sauce:

  • In a saucepan, add heavy cream and stir while warming.
  • Cut brie and gorgonzola into finger size chunks and add to the cream.
  • Add parmesan and whisk continually until cheese melts and the sauce becomes creamy.
  • Mix well until completely blended.
  • Use immediately or refrigerate until use.

To Plate:
