Organic Chestnut Gnocchi - Cornwall Pasta Co

This isn't any old gnocchi, this is organic, and made with chestnut four that is sailed over 'port to port' from one or their selected regenerative and organic producers. 

Port to port you say? Yes, It is sailed (by sail alone) on a beautiful old wooden clipper to their home port of Mylor Harbour in Cornwall. The voyage takes around 6 days, weather dependent to reach them from Portugal. The taste is divine, sweet, rich, deep nutty flavour which leaves you wanting more!
