Keen-Wah


Let me tell you a story:

Once upon a time, I went to a restaurant and ordered an entrĂ©e of creamy pesto ganache with pancetta. The waitress gave me a strange look, but took my order and 20 minutes later I was devouring a plate of pillow-y potatoes in a delicious sauce. It wasn't until we were well into dessert that it dawned on me – GNOCCHI. Yes, that’s right, I had said ‘ganache’ which is not really even close to gnocchi (gnocci = potato pasta, ganache = rich chocolate goodness). Little did I know, but thankfully the waitress did – bless her heart, that I meant ‘gnocchi.’
