300 grams potatoes
75 grams potato flour
1 each eggs
small one
1 tablespoon romano cheese
teaspoon salt
or 1/4 tsp
1 pinch white pepper
3 each chicken drumsticks
without skin if you wish
250 millilitres water
100 grams mushrooms, chanterelle
cleaned, rinsed, small ones
1 tablespoon garlic
bear's garlic, dried, heaping
1 tablespoon parsley leaves
chopped finely
1 each scallions, spring or green onions
chopped finely, without chives
1 each bay leaves
small one
½ teaspoon salt
more if needed
1 x black pepper
2 teaspoons cornstarch
plus small amount of cold water
2 teaspoons sunflower oil


1 - Boil peeled potatoes in salted water, about 1 teaspoon per half liter of water. When ready drain them and leave them alone to cool for about 30 to 60 minutes. Do not cover or do it partially. Shake from time to time. 2 - In the meantime prepare the rest of ingredients. 3 - Sauté chicken drumsticks for 1 to 2 minutes, add onion and fry for the next 2 minutes. Do not brown the onion. 4 - Pour in water, add mushrooms, bear's garlic, parsley leaves, salt. Bring to boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Mix cornstarch with water and add to thicken the sauce. Simmer for 2 minutes stirring. 5 - In the meantime find a ricer and a medium bowl. Process potatoes through the ricer, and place in a bowl. 6 - Add flour, egg, salt, and pecorino to the bowl. Sprinkle some white pepper. Mix by hand, or by wooden spoon, or by any tool which will be effective. Do it until well combined. 7 - Take small portion of the mixture, and form it into ball not bigger than a walnut. Use your hands. You should have about 30 small dumplings. 8 - Steam your dumplings for about 15 to 20 minutes. They shouldn't touch themselves when steamed, because they won't be good-looking. However if you cook for yourself, it doesn't matter. 9 - When dumplings are ready, the sauce will be done as well. Recommended salad: lettuce with greek yogurt and seasoning.

Fresh and seasonal chanterelle mushrooms sound divine, hmm! We don't have the luck here, and it's very difficult to find this type of gourmet mushrooms.

Another well-balanced recipe on both flavor and texture. It looks absolutely delicious and healthful too. Happy Cooking :-)

xie xie ni :) I'm surprised you cannot find chanterelles in your country. Oceans of forests and the same latitude as European. Frankly speaking I have problems with ingredients as well, and I cannot realize many recipes from RL. Sometimes one ingredient may be substituted by another, however when you substitute 3 important ingredients then the taste of dish may be quite far away from the original.
