My MIL in Italy always used the semi fine part of a stand up grater or the tines of a fork for her gnocchi, and so do I. I didn't know about gnocchi boards!
Wont get one tho'..its a time honoured tradition in the Italian part of my family, and tradition goes a looooooooooog way in that country. MIL had a brand new washing machine but insisted on washing the laundry at the well.
Yeah...lots of gossip with the other mama's there went down a treat so good on her!!
