Holly Smith is the chef-owner of Cafe Juanita, in Seattle WA., an excellent restaurant because Holly is a very creative chef and because she buys the best ingredients available, many from us. One of the products she buys is cardoon honey by Liccu Manias from Sardegna. She was invited to cook a benefit dinner at the end of March at the James Beard House in NYC. The dish they chose for her was Semolina Gnocchi with Cardoon Honey. She said: “I really think it is the honey that sold them on this particular dish…”
The dish was a triumph and here is the recipe.
