French Fridays: Parisian gnocchi from My Paris Kitchen

Parisian gnocchi from My Paris Kitchen on eatlivetravelwrite.comThose of us who cooked our way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around my French Table made a version of this week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays from David Lebovitz’s My Paris Kitchen way back in 2011. 

Gnocchi à la Parisienne is basically choux pastry, lightly poached in simmering water, then baked in béchamel sauce. Um, yum. It’s a pretty simple recipe to make (as long as you have your trusty cookie scoop to scoop out the choux puffs) though it is very rich so if you’re just two people, you might want to minify the dish and make 1/3 the amount like I did. This was the perfect accompaniment to any kind of meat as your starch component of the meal (and if you make it in advance, it sort of sets and you’ll be able to slice it so it’s like a cheesy custard (mmmm!).

Get the recipe for David Lebovitz’s Parisian Gnocchi on page 130 of My Paris Kitchen.

  1. …and, I might add, was a perfect accompaniment with some steamed asparagus AND a bottle of Saint-Bris. (Sauvignon Blanc from a specific appellation in Bourgogne, France.)

  2. I love this recipe and have made it a number of times when I know there will be enough people to enjoy it. Yours looks great, I love the browning on top.
