Veal Osso Bucco with Gnocchi, Gremolata

We all love Italian food in the family, and we do try to find as traditional dishes as possibly can...
This is my adaption of Veal Osso Bucco, a dish I saw on Italian Food Safari...

For the Gremolata:
Zest of 1 leomon
1.5 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp olive oil
5 sprigs parsley
Pinch of sea salt flakes
Mince garlic and parsley, add salt and lemon zest, and olive oil, and stir well, serve with Osso Bucco.

For the Gnocchi:
450g Potato
80g plain flour
Pinch of salt.

Boil potato in skin, when ready, take them out and dry in colander, when still warm, use ricer to make mash, mix with flour, knead dough. Gently form a long stripe, shape gnocchi into shell shape at the back of fork, and cooked for 2-3 minutes in boiled water.
Drain well. Melt butter in pan, and gently toss gnocchi in pan.

For the Osso Bucco:
4 Pieces of Veal Osso Bucco
1 Can of Diced Italian Tomato
Dried Herbs – Oregano, Mint, Bay Leaves…
2 tbsp Tomato Paste
1/3 cup white wine
2 cloves garlic
1 onion
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp Greek Yoghurt
1 cup Veal Stock (or beef stock)
Fresh parsley, a handful
80g fresh mushroom slices.
Salt and Raw sugar to taste

Heat olive oil in pan, add in thinly sliced onion and crushed garlic, caramelise till bit fragrant, place veal osso bucco on top of caramelised onion.
Add dried herbs, sear both sides of osso bucco.
Add tomato paste and diced tomato, add salt.
Add white wine, sugar and mix well.
Add stock and place mushroom slices and chopped parsley loosely on top.
Simmer for 2 hours.
