I really learned so much and I liked learning the basics to build upon. I know that you probably don't cook in this venue but I would love to have amazing foods that don't have flour or sugar. A cooking class for health that is just as yummy and beautiful to eat.

I think the class, as a whole, made me feel more connected to the food prepared, the equipment used, and the mind of great chefs. It was deeply spiritual and philosophical in a way. I hope one day to pass along the love of cooking and the joy it brings people to my children.

Ihave learned many techniques of refinement and how to observe and use all of my senses more effectively when preparing food. Thank you Chef,

Thomas Keller made me feel like I was in his kitchen learning right beside him. He was clear in his explanations and his enthusiasm using all our senses when we prepare and cook was exciting. Thank you for the tips and making me feel I can be an even better cook for my family!

I have always loved making gnocchi. This is my go-to recipe now because these gnocchi are so light and fluffy. I'm always amazed by his "respect" of all the ingredients.

I've finally thrown my box grater out. It was such a source of constant injuries... Any kitchen machine or food mill is a much better choice.

Cynthia M.

Looks amazing and can't wait to try making it. Does anyone know if this method works similarly with dried gnocchi rather than frozen?

I have replicated the recipe and it taster marvellous. So light, fresh, and filling. The only issue was that the Gnocchi stuck to the pan and turned into much. It did not hold its shape. Any advice on how to avoid that for next time?


I don't quite understand that habit of putting vinegar everywhere.... In my opinion in many cases it doesn't enhance flavors but it changes them too much...

To die for! So easy and amazing. The Farmers Market tomatos get most of the credit. The basil was homegrown and fresh picked. I am not much of a cook and that I could make something that tastes this good in a short amount of time? My mind is blown!


Loved this simple recipe! I added some chicken thighs to the sauce for a little added protein. The fresh garlic sautéed with the gnocchi and the fresh basil knocks it out of the park. The tomato sauce from grated tomatoes is stunning. I was reluctant at first because I love a heavier sauce. but its perfect for the delicate texture of the gnocchi.


Would you still need to grate the tomatoes to make this sauce with San Marzano tomatoes?

Great lesson. Growing Marzano tomatoes in the garden. When they are ready I will enjoy making this dish. Thank you so much!

I have grated my tomatoes for the last 20 some years for most sauces and for canning. I then dehydrate the skins and grind them into a powder to add to sauces, soups etc. for an extra tomato depth of flavor. I can't wait to make this!
