Cooking with Lucy: Home Made Potato Gnocchi


This home made gnocchi recipe is the perfect warming dish for a cool Autumn evening.

Gnocchi are super easy to make – in fact, you will only need four basic ingredients!

These cute fluffy pillows of pasta can be served with a creamy mushroom sauce for a seasonal flavour, or with a classic tomato and basil sauce if you prefer.

You will need:
– 4 or 5 potatoes
– 2 cups of plain flour
– 1 egg
– 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
– salt and pepper to taste
– sauce of your preference to serve

Italiano con Anna (& Ciro!) Episode 2


It’s time to play Tombola (Italian Bingo) with Anna and Ciro! Before watching this video, print your Tombola cards and collect some small stones, buttons, or seeds. Then you’ll be ready to play along at home.

Every time Anna or Ciro draws an animal card from the bag, check to see if that animal is on your Tombola card. If you can see the same animal on your Tombola card, put one of your small stones or buttons on that square. When your card is full, you can yell out TOMBOLA! You have won!

While we’re playing, we’ll also learn the Italian names for lots of different animals – la balena, il cavallo, la rana…
