  • Gnocchi Board: Rigagnocchi

The untold gnocchi-making secret

Gnocchi Board or Rigagnocchi is that cute, wooden kitchen tool that takes your gnocchi to the next level! Literally translating to gnocchi stripper, this handy utensil adds delightful stripes to your gnocchi as you roll them over it. But why bother with this extra step? Those grooves aren’t just for show—they help your gnocchi capture and hold onto the sauce, making each bite even more delicious. It’s one of those untold cooking secrets that truly make a difference and is an essential part of the gnocchi-making tradition.

In our cooking classes, we love using the rigagnocchi for a variety of gnocchi recipes, including potato gnocchi, ricotta gnocchi, and flour-and-water gnocchi. This little tool is not only affordable but also 100% made in Italy, just like us!

Now you’re in on the secret—grab your own rigagnocchi and elevate your gnocchi game!
