    I'm not sure how the new website works in that this recipe is not shown on the episode page and yet it is identified with episode 2008. There isn't a secondary listing under the Potato Gnocchi to allow you to find the other recipes shown on that program.
    Now I'm going to try to find the Lemon Cake and the Eggplant Parm.

    This recipe for Shrimp looks delicious and easy.
