Australian Restaurant Is Bringing Back Its Record Breaking 29-Cheese Gnocchi
Cheese is one of those food groups that some people absolutely adore.
Whether they're basic and love a cheddar or a brie, or they like to flex their fromage skills by stanning an Airag cheese or a Milbenkase, they're all delicious in one way, shape or form.
But imagine having 29 cheeses in one delicious dish? Imagine no more as an Australian restaurant in Melbourne is bringing back its famous 29-cheese gnocchi.
South Yarra's Cucinetta shaped the incredibly cheesy meal on how big the restaurant is, which is 29-square metres if you must ask.
The Italian eatery has teamed up with That's Amore Cheese to bring the epic meal back for a third year. It's only going to be on offer for two weeks so you need to get in quick.
You'll be able to grab a bite at dinner service from January 4 to January 20, and for lunch and dinner from January 11 to January 17.
Of course you're wondering what delicious cheeses have made the cut.
The gnocchi includes Fior di Latte, Buffalo Mozzarella, Burrata, Scamorza Bianca, Caciotta, Pepper Caciotta, Chilli Caciotta, Truffle Caciotta, Ricotta Delicata, Ricotta Salata, Mascarpone, Squacquerone, Buffalo Bocconcini, Buffalo Ricotta, Buffalo Caciotta, Buffalo Mozzarella (smoked), Smoked Bocconcini, Smoked Scamorza, Smoked Caciocavallo, Diavoletto, Secret of The Forest, Drunken Buffalo, Lavato, Panettone, Panettone with Truffle, Caciocavallo, Bufalotto, Blue Cheese and Formaggio di Vacca.
Melbourne sure does have some places that promote cheese.

400 Gradi in Brunswick, Melbourne set a Guinness World Record last year for creating a pizza with 154 different types of cheese toppings.
The previous record for the highest number of cheese varieties on a single pizza was 111, so the guys at 400 Gradi absolutely smashed it.
Chef Johnny Di Francesco told the Guinness World Records: "While the 154-cheese pizza may not have been a culinary impossibility, it was certainly a culinary challenge! We knew it was an ambitious idea, but probably more-so than first anticipated.
"We also needed to be sure each individual cheese was distinct enough from the next, yet complimentary to each flavour, and could blend really well together once combined.
"The cheeses included the likes of gorgonzola, pecorino, Taleggio, aged cheddar, gouda and of course, many more!"
Johnny said he was inspired to take on the challenge thanks to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. One of the turtles, Donatello, said that a pizza with 99 different cheeses was a 'culinary impossibility'.
Well, take that Donatello.
When the pizza was rolled out across 400 Gradi's restuarants, they introduced an ingenious hack to make it easier to create. They infused the 154 cheeses into one giant block and shipped it out, rather than making the chefs have to do it themselves.
