Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Have all the ingredients prepared and ready to go on the side. Make sure all the herbs are super-finely minced so the gnocchi can be cut neatly later.

step 2
Combine Water (3/4 cup), Unsalted Butter (1 Tbsp), and Salt (2 tsp) in a large pot and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat to prevent too much water-evaporation before the butter melts.
step 3
Once the butter has completely melted, add the All-Purpose Flour (1 cup) all at once, and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is even and comes into a glossy and smooth dough.

step 4
Continue to cook the dough over medium-low heat for a couple min, until a thin coating starts to form at the bottom of the pot (but not browning).
step 5
Remove the pot and cool it inside the sink filled with shallow, cold water - make sure the water doesn’t overflow into the pot. Once the pot is cool enough to touch, move it back to the counter over a clean towel.
step 6
Add Dijon Mustard (1 Tbsp), Fresh Chives (1 Tbsp), Fennel Leaves (2 tsp), Fresh Cilantro (2 tsp), then mix evenly with a wooden spoon. Add Emmental Cheese (1/2 cup) and mix evenly again.

step 7
Add the Eggs (2) one at a time, and mix it into the dough until completely smooth before adding the next. Add the yolk and mix until smooth, and check the consistency.
step 8
If consistency is right, a scoop of the dough on a tilted wooden spoon should fall down very very slowly. If it doesn’t move and seems too stiff or dry, add just 1 tablespoon of the separated egg white to adjust.

Transfer the dough into a piping-bag and let rest at room-temperature for 30 min.

step 10
Bring a pot of water with a good pinch of salt to simmer. If you are using disposable piping-bag like me, cut a 3/4″ (2 cm) opening at the tip, or fit a reusable piping-bag with a plain-tip.
step 11
Keep the water at a very gentle simmer, then squeeze the dough out of the piping-bag while “cutting” it into the water with a small knife. If the dough is sticking to the knife, just dip the knife in the hot water then continue.

step 12
Poach the gnocchi for another 1 - 2 min after they’ve floated to the surface of the water, remove with a slotted spoon and do the next batch.

step 13
Evenly scatter the gnocchi on a parchment-lined sheet and refrigerate until needed or up to 1 day, or flash-freeze them until hard and keep in an air-tight container in the freezer (thaw for a couple hours before using).

step 14
Mix the Fatty Ground Pork (5 oz) with the Corn Starch until even, set aside. Rinse the Dried Shiitake Mushroom (1/3 cup) in water to rid of any sands and dirt, then soak in 3 tablespoons of hot water for 15 minutes.
step 15
Then remove the mushrooms, set aside, and reserve the soaking-water. Trim off the stems of Kale (2 handfuls), using the green leaves only and finely slice them.

step 16
Heat up a large, flat skillet over medium-high heat (use non-stick if in doubt), then add the Unsalted Butter (1 Tbsp). Once it starts to brown slightly, add the gnocchi and pan-toast them until nicely browned on both sides. Transfer to a plate.
