The gnocchi board is a typical instrument of Italian cuisine, with a peculiar aspect, used to give the gnocchi the typical striped aspect that distinguishes them. It is a wooden base characterized by different grooves and a handle to be able to handle it easily, but in the case of less traditional tools the material with which a gnocchi board is made can also be plastic.
But how do you use it? Using the gnocchi board is very simple: once the gnocchi are formed, just press them with your fingers, applying a little more than light pressure so as not to ruin them, along the surface of the tool. The result will be immediate and long-lasting, given that the shape obtained will also remain in cooking: simple but effective, to obtain homemade gnocchi as tradition dictates!
