Recipe: Gnocchi with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Parmesan

Store-bought gnocchi is great for quick lunches as they cook in no time at all. For only RM10 per pack, each pack will yield 4 servings (that's two lunches for us), so it's definitely great value for money.

When The Unc came back from his holidays, he brought us some nice Spanish chorizo, as well as 30-month aged Parmesan, which I thought would work very well with gnocchi. Hence, this Gnocchi with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Parmesan dish was born. Super simple to make with delicious flavours - we would definitely be making this again! :)

Gnocchi with Chorizo, Mushrooms and Parmesan
Recipe by Baby Sumo
Preparation time: 3 minutes
Cooking time: 6-7 minutes
Serves 2

250g store-bought potato gnocchi (1/2 pack)
100g grey oyster mushrooms, chopped
2 tbp olive oil
6cm length chorizo, thinly sliced and quartered
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground pepper
A small handful parsley, finely chopped

1. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Once boiling, add the gnocchi and cook for 2 minutes, or until the gnocchi float to the top and then lift out with a slotted spoon and drain well.

2. In a frying pan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and saute for about 1 minute, until lightly golden, then add the chorizo and saute for a minute. Next, add the mushrooms and cook for about 2 minutes, until the mushrooms have softened.

3.Finally, add the cooked gnocchi and saute for about 1 minute until the gnocchi have a slight crispy crust on them. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Serve gnocchi immediately with generous shavings of Parmesan cheese and freshly chopped parsley.

Sunday Brunch @ The Brasserie, The St Regis Hotel KL

Sundays in KL just got a whole lot better, with the launch of the Sunday Brunch at the city's swankiest hotel, The St Regis Kuala Lumpur.  Sunday Brunch is now served at The Brasserie, a sumptuous dining space with sophisticated interior design (Hubby loves their revolving dining chairs, which he thinks is genius). The Brasserie's pressed tin ceilings pay homage to Kuala Lumpur's rich origins as a tin mining state.

Inspired by the French daily markets, offerings here will feature French-Mediterranean fare,  placing emphasis on quality imported produce. Indulge in a selection of fresh seafood, tasty cold cuts, Sunday roasts, an expansive top quality cheese selection and an array of sweet treats. Guests can opt to top up with the free-flow champagne / wine / cocktail option.

Whet your appetite with the freshest seafood on ice - choose from freshly shucked Fine de Claire oysters, Royal Alaskan king crab, clams, cockles and king prawns.

There are also smoked salmon, as well as two types of cured salmon - gravlax and one other with grain mustard and tarragon.

A great selection of tasty cold cuts such as smoked beef pastrami, smoked French duck breast, and beef bresaola.

And one of my favorite appetizers - the foie gras terrine.

Chef's signature Heirloom tomato and creamy burrata is another must-try dish

The carving station will feature a Black Angus rib eye roast, as well as a poultry and fish dish on rotation.

Indulge in free flow alcoholic beverages such as Veuve Clicquot or Cote du Rhone red and white wines as well as St Regis KL's signature Asam Boi Mary cocktail.

Other than the fantastic buffet spread, a selection of dishes are prepared a la minute upon request to ensure food is served to you at its optimum. Guests can expect specials such as linguine served with Black Angus bolognaise, asparagus risotto, eggs Florentine, and waffle served with foie gras terrine and mango chutney.

Half shell green mussel

An impressive selection of imported cheese awaits you, from tangy Vacherin Mont d’Or to the piquant Roquefort AOP Papillon and creamy camembert

End your meal with an amazing spread of sweets such as raspberry cheesecake, homemade cinnamon churros, magnum fudge brownies, lemon meringue shooters and assorted macarons.
