Caramelized Ricotta Gnudi with Sage, Pecorino and Hunter Browns by Chef Deniz [VIDEO]

When I stopped by Well-Seasoned, they were kind enough to show how convenient our Brown Butter Cubes were by using our brown butter in not one, but TWO dishes in only an hour's time.

Owner Angie Quaale and Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu are always a pleasure to work with that I couldn't pass up the chance to pop by when they had their live online class. Check out their recipe and video below!

Caramelized Ricotta Gnudi with Sage, Pecorino and Hunter Browns' Brown Butter Cubes


  • 250ml flour

  • 5ml salt

  • 400ml ricotta, drained in a colander

  • 3 yolks

  • 75ml chopped chives

  • 5 sprigs of sage

  • 50ml grated pecorino romano

  • 30ml Hunter Browns' Brown Butter Cubes (2 cubes)

  • 3 garlic clove, zested fine


  1. In a food processor combine ricotta, salt and yolks and purée until smooth. Transfer into a bowl, add flour and 50ml of chives. Mix until homogenous.

  2. Divide the dough into 2 and shape each half into a rope with a diameter of 1 inch. Cut 1 inch chunks also and place on a baking sheet dusted with flour.

  3. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and cook the gnudi until it floats. Reserve 150ml cooking water.

  4. In the meantime heat up a large skillet on high heat, add brown butter cubes and sage, fry until crispy. Reserve the sage and add cooked gnudi into the brown butter and caramelize over medium heat until deep golden brown. Add cooking water and reduce until it becomes a shiny glaze.

  5. Add zested garlic, rest of the chives, garnish with crispy sage leaves, serve.
