Gnocchi Alla Romana

A few weeks back Eileen contacted me via Instagram! because she was working on a food photography documentary and was wondering if I’d like to participate. I was intrigued. I proposed that we meet for coffee so that she could tell me a little more about her project and get to know her a little.
A few days later we met up for breakfast at a cool little café called Mokonuts. She told me she was making a documentary about how people connect through food. She was contacting strangers that were in some way or another related to food, via social networks. Eileen asked if I would be open to cook for her at my home and tell her my story of how I came to be in the food world and in Paris. She would be taking photos of the whole thing, me cooking, talking, plating, eating.

A few weeks ago my brother asked me for a cheese soufflé recipe. He was hosting a dinner party for some friends in Buenos Aires and wanted to prepare one for them. He loves soufflé. Who doesn’t, right?

I knew that some of my guests like to eat simple (like me!) and I didn’t want to make pasta. I suddenly saw the crepes in my head and I knew they were the chosen ones!
I haven’t made or eaten one of these in ages. All the more reason to get cooking! My friends loved loved them!! SO I decided to share them on the blog... just one hiccup; I’d taken almost no photos... And the ones I did take were not all that great.
