Twenty-Nine Cheese Gnocchi 2021
South Yarra's Cucinetta is serving up this extremely cheesy gnocchi for two weeks only.
Melburnians, you really love your cheese. You've tried a 150-cheese pizza, bought buckets of the stuff on the cheap and have entered cheese-fuelled comas in a cheese cave. Now, you can kick off 2021 with another ultra-cheesy experience: a 29-cheese gnocchi.
South Yarra's Cucinetta is the eatery behind the wondrous creation, which it's bringing back for a third year. If you're keen, it's available for dinner from Monday, January 4–Sunday, January 10 — and for both lunch and dinner from Monday, January 11–Sunday, January 17.
The handmade potato gnocchi is oven-baked with 29 cheeses sourced from Thomastown's That's Amore Cheese, including buffalo mozzarella, truffled caciotta (a fresh cow's milk cheese), smoked scamorza, blue cheese and salted ricotta.
Setting you back $34.99, it can be enjoyed with one of 29 wines on the regularly changing list and eaten inside the 29-square-metre restaurant. Sensing a theme? Cucinetta really likes the number 29.
If you, like us, fancy yourself a bit of a cheese fanatic, you're probably curious as to what the 29 cheeses are. Well, here's the full list:
Fior di latte
Buffalo mozzarella (smoked)
Secret of The Forest
Panettone with truffle
Formaggio di vacca
Cucinetta's 29-cheese gnocchi is available from 12–4pm and 5pm-late daily.
