    At No. 9 Park in Boston, Barbara Lynch stuffs her gnocchi with prunes (and serves it with a foie gras sauce). It’s probably the best dish at any restaurant in Boston.

    Wow, this is a fabulous twist to the old gnocchi. I have been using grapes in breads and with sausages,so i welcome your dish as I can now experiment with gnocchi as well.

    I love finding unusual takes on classics. Gnocchi is great on its own, but I’m dying to try it with grapes stuffed inside! I’ll definitely return to this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing it; you have a beautiful blog.
