Can I buy this in England? In Switzerland they sell it cooked, in vac packs a bit like we can buy gnocchi here. I love it fried in butter with bacon but haven't seen it anywhere here.
The only places I've found any is the dried sort from Ocado. There are german speciality shops online but I don't know they'll have it.
I make it but you need one of the thingys that make them into fat worm shapes.
german deli might sell (and deliver) them. or have a look at the german baker van, maybe they stop near you?
Nemno, is the dried one okay? I'm guessing you just pre cook it then cool and use it like fresh??
Thanks Mousy but I live in the north
the dried ones are just like pasta imo, not at all like delicious dumplings.
It's not as good as fresh homemade but we still like it, I don't know the vac packed one you refer to. I need to get myself one of the things Rosa mentions, my cousin has one and it is very simple.
Waitrose sell Fresh Del'Ugo gnocchetti which are very similar. I have the fat worm shape thingy making device mentioned by Rosa and make lovely spinach spaetzles. Bought it on holiday in Northern Italy though, never seen them in shops here.
It's 'German week' in Lidl from THursday - they're advertising it from then.here
Looks like the dried version however.
apparently a potatoe ricer works as well.
<really wants käsespätzel now>
You can grate the dough with a coarse cheese grater to get the worm shapes too.
I was just about to say I ought to try my potato ricer with the large hole insert. Brilliant you think it will work Mousy
Thanks everyone. I think I will have a go at fresh and use the cheese grater
How did it go? I have a 'set' here (scraper/grater etc) but not been brave enough to try yet. Fortunately I can buy it in the shops ;)
