Potato gnocchi with cheese fondue, a northern treat

Gnocchi di Patate con Fonduta, Potato Gnocchi with cheese fondue

Cheese fondue could have originated in Geneva or Torino, but most think it has Swiss origins. Here, the creamy cow cheese, likely a fontina, is paired with potato gnocchi, as potatoes are a specialty of the northern climes of Piemonte, where you’re most likely to find this dish.

The picture comes from the Trattoria Edelweiss in the village of Balboutet in the Val Chisone. It’s not the most colorful dish, but on a cool day, it’s just what you desire.
