Gnocchi al Forno with Jerusalem Artichokes, Taleggio and Truffle - Chef Recipe by Peter Twitchett


"This dish is inspired from Northern Italy, where the delicious taleggio cheese comes from. The combination of Jerusalem artichokes and truffle is a heavenly match and topping this off with taleggio cheese takes it to another level of gastronomy experience. This dish is such a beautiful Winter warmer." – Head Chef Peter Twitchett.
