Finally, the moment of truth: the taste test.
I divvied up the gnocchi to try it plain, with tomato sauce and then with a brown butter-sage sauce ó which is how it's served in the picture on the package. I also enlisted the help of my 7-year-old, who I had to pay to persuade him to try it.
Without anything, the gnocchi are definitely very cauliflower-forward, so they need some kind of sauce if you're not a fan of that flavor. With the sauce, though, the cauliflower taste fades to the background, and the texture is a pretty spot-on stand-in to the traditional soft dumpling..
ďWith so many of us striving to be in monogamous relationships, thereís something inherently provocative and taboo about the fantasy of watching our partner have sex with someone else. Watching anotherís hand touch our partnerís body or anotherís mouth kiss our partnerís mouth reinforces our partnerís desirability while making a predictable attachment suddenly feel unpredictable, taking us back to the early days of infatuation. In the position of the voyeur (even in our own imaginations), we can be in power with our watchful gaze or powerless. Either way, through the lens of fantasy, pain becomes pleasure.Ē ?Kerner
