Chin up. Try again next time.

The first step to getting good at something is to suck at something. A trick that helped me to improve is to stop saying things are just bad, think about what made it bad and learn how to not do it again. Were your gnocchis too soggy? too hard? was the sauce watery or salty? did the spices you use just no go well together?

Try to pinpoint what went wrong and how to avoid it next time.

If you fail again, follow the recipes and try again.

this should help you troubleshoot what went wrong with the gnocchi at least.

you probably made the sauce and gnocci fine, you just have terrible taste and don't realize it.

Ya know, I've been coming to 4chan for almost ten years now and have only within the past few months started going on boards besides /b/, /mu/, and /x/. /b/ ruined me in terms of board etiquette and I can't tell you how many times I've had to censor myself when posting here or anywhere else

That dish sounds like the first task on last Friday's episode of Humble Pie.

Is that where you got the idea, or is it just coincidence?

coincidence

Maybe add some more egg and flour to help bind the gnocchi better.
When I make mushroom sauce I use whatever drippings or fond is left in the pan after I cook my protein, to cook my mushrooms in. You'll want to cook the mushrooms halfway so they don't over cook in the sauce and become tough. Add a small amount of heavy cream to that and some stock, whatever you have is fine, let that reduce until it can coat the back of a spoon then add in some herbs and a dash of salt. Bam done.

I think what helps when learning to cook, is to study various recipes and methods and look to see what they all have in common in terms of technique. Then you just practice and troubleshoot.

Eventually, you'll get to the point where you can learn a recipe after a few tries and get nice consistent results. And then you can learn to mix it up and see what comes out of it.

I never made gingerbread cookies before, yet my second batch of cookies were even better than what you could get from the store. Very consistent with a nice crunch and flavour.

I think a cookery class helps a ton.
And remember this advice:

You can always add, but you CAN'T take away.

Remember that. Approach with care and caution. Add only when you feel you need to.

I made gnocchi last week for the first time and they were delicious. What did you fuck up? It's a simple recipe
