I’ve discovered awesome gnocchi. Melt in your mouth, making you want more, awesome gnocchi. Paese Ristorante is the place where I found this awesome gnocchi.

Start, some wine. Beaulieu Vineyards Reserve Tapestry 2009, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Deep and dark, a nice floral scent, rich flavour of fruit like cherry and plum, smooth finish. Delicious. IMG_5869


While the wine is being sipped, we snacked on some focaccia bread drizzled with oil and dipped in a pesto sauce of sorts. Crisp on the outside, super soft on the inside. IMG_5870

My dinner – Lamb Carbonara, Braised lamb neck, spinach gnocchi, roasted garlic soffrito and oregano. Did I say this was melt in your mouth awesome? It was melt in your mouth awesome. IMG_5872IMG_5873IMG_5874
