Magical Truffle Gnocchi 🪄

Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 3-4

Lusciously comforting gnocchi in a rich cream sauce elevated by fragrant Istrian truffles. Makes the perfect side for roast pork loin or beef tagliata for carnivores, or can be served with a side salad for vegetarians.


  • 500g gnocchi (store bought is OK, we don't judge)
  • 60g finely grated cheese (Istrian goat is best, Parmesan will do in a pinch)
  • 30g butter
  • 250ml fresh cream
  • 2 shallots
  • 50g fresh summer truffle or 90g Tartufata


  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan
  2. Brown the shallots for a few minutes
  3. Add the cream, cheese and grate 10g of fresh truffle into the mix
  4. Mix well until you get a nicely combined sauce
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste and remove from the heat
  6. Cook the gnocchi in boiling water until they rise to the surface, usually about 2 minutes
  7. Drain the gnocchi and toss in the creamy cheese sauce, add a ladle of gnocchi cooking water if sauce too thick
  8. Shave the rest of your truffle over the gnocchi and enjoy!
