  • For those of you who haven’t had gnocchi, these small dumplings are made from a mixture of flour/semolina and potatoes with additions such as cheese, herbs and more depending on the recipe and region of Italy where they were made.
  • As far as history goes, it seems gnocchi originated in the colder climes of Northern Italy where potatoes were hardier than wheat to grow and dates back to the 16th century when explorers brought back potatoes from South America.
  • The word gnocchi may have come from the Italian word ‘nocchio’ which means a knot in wood or ‘nocca’ which means a knuckle as both describe how gnocchi look.
  • In Argentina there is a tradition called Day of Gnocchi. Every 29th day of the month, families gather to eat gnocchi and some restaurants only serve gnocchi on this day.  The day originated from the fact that payday was always the first of the month for many people and by the end of the month kitchens were bare of food with only staples left. Day of Gnocchi is also considered a good luck day.
The Inco smokestack is the second largest freestanding structure in Canada, and the sixth biggest in North America, only 220 feet smaller than the Empire State Building.
