To celebrate Wine and Food Month this June 2013 in the Hunter Valley, NSW, Cracked Pepper Restaurant has put together a mouth watering Ricotta Gnocchi (Gluten free) that you can make at home OR come and try during the Wine and Food Month festivities which commence on June 1, 2013!
Combine ingredients then gently form small pillows, rolling in extra flour.
Before rolling all the mixture, bring a small pot of water to a rolling boil & drop a test piece of the mix in till it floats, to check seasoning & that the mix will hold together. Adjust if required. Place pillows on a flour-dusted tray & freeze till needed. This quantity will provide enough gnocchi for 4 main course servings.
The duck ragu featured during June is quite complicated & time consuming to prepare. However, for a very simple & easy meal, the following fresh tomato sauce is delicious over the gnocchi.
Fresh Tomato Sauce:
Gently sauté the eschalot dice & garlic until clear. Add the tomato dice & season with salt & pepper. Add a good splash of wine & simmer gently for approximately 15 minutes. Taste & add a little sugar if too acidic & adjust seasoning if needed.
Bring a generous pot of water to the boil & slowly add the gnocchi (approximately ten at a time), allowing the water to return to the boil between additions & stirring to create a ‘whirlpool’.
Add a couple of knobs of butter & parsley to the simmering sauce & add gnocchi as they float. Serve in warm bowls, drizzle with good extra virgin olive oil & scatter with shaved Pecorino. Enjoy with a salad & a glass of good Hunter Shiraz.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
