So last Friday during our usual "What are we doing tonight" conversation Ryan said he wanted to stay in and cook (seems like all we do now, unless invited to some event). He felt like cooking with pumpkin and was thinking something along the lines of pasta with a pumpkin sauce as we have done before. I wanted to do something a little different and was thinking of attempting to make our own gnocchi and found this recipe for Pumpkin Gnocchi with Sage. It took a little bit of convincing to get Ryan to agree to the recipe, I think he is very fond of his pumpkin sauce.
While picking up ingredients Ryan said he wanted to try celeriac so we bought one to try out - had no idea what he was going to do with it. But being something we both hadn't tried before I was keen.
Ryan picked up some knife skills during his time working as a waiter, he became friends with the chefs. There would be no way that I would come out unharmed if I was cutting something like this. I'm not very good with a knife at all though I love mum's cmall cleaver which I use for everything.
