Marmite breadsticks - Gaffer Tape and Cable Ties. Love it or hate it, Marmite has been a part of Britain for well over a century so I have decided to have a crack at making some brilliant bread with this polarising product. Based on a light wholemeal recipe the breadsticks have a certain element of the Twiglet about them. I cooked them to be soft but I think they would work just as well crunchy.

Put in a bowl and allow to cool, then mix in the ricotta, egg yolks, parmesan, nutmeg, two thirds of the flour and some seasoning. Taste for seasoning – it needs to be aggressively seasoned or the gnocchi will be bland. Sprinkle the rest of the flour lightly on to a baking-sheet or your work surface. Using floured hands roll the mixture into little balls about the size of a brazil nut in its shell, then slightly elongate so you have little gnocchi that are about 1.5cm (½in) wide.
