This recipe comes from Salerno on the Amalfi coast, where mozzarella is plentiful and ox heart tomatoes are eaten fresh for their meaty, yet delicate sweetness. Here, Leonardo Gelsomino from Melbourne’s Yak Bar talks us through how to prepare your own gnocchi from scratch.
1 egg yolk
10 basil leaves
4 balls buffalo mozzarella
2 tbsp grated parmesan
Salt and pepper, to season
PreparationBoil the potatoes in their skins. When cooked, drain and peel the potatoes while still hot.
Push the potatoes through a rice sieve and into a large bowl.
Make a well in the centre and add the salt, egg yolk and flour and mix to make a dough. Roll out the dough, cutting into gnocchi-sized pieces.
Cook the gnocchi in salted water. They are cooked when they rise to the top. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon.
Add the gnocchi to a pan of Napoli sauce with fresh basil leaves (leave a few leaves aside).
Place the gnocchi on a plate, top with the mozzarella and grill until the mozzarella melts.
To serve, sprinkle with the parmesan and the reminder of the basil leaves.

How to tell your steak is cooked
You can use palm of your hand to help determine how your steak is cooked. Gently bringing together your index finger and thumb, and pressing the mound on your palm below the thumb will feel similar pressing a raw steak; the middle finger and thumb is like medium rare; and onwards to the pinky will feel like a well-done steak.
Habanero (fresh) is a super super hot variety of chilli.
