"I've made potato gnocchi before and they always fell apart or were hard as rocks so that I pretty much gave up on one of my favorite Italian dishes. Gerri made it so easy. I followed her potato gnocchi instructions exactly and they were terrific. I just wish my photo would do them justice. I have watched all lessons - had no idea that I could make gnocchi from squash! - and will try all of the recipes provided. The upbeat, nice Italian music certainly adds to the class, videos are well done, and Gerri's fun remarks (about quality control etc.) made me feel like I was in one room with her. Highly recommended!"
