Method

 
Boil potatoes until tender. Peel while still hot. Mash potatoes and mix in flour and egg yolks very quickly, using a wooden spoon or your hands (mixture must still be hot). Work in Fontina cheese. (Work on a well-floured surface.) Roll out potato dough and cut into 5 cm pieces. Drop into boiling salted water, a few at a time, and cook until they rise to the top, about 1 minute. Do not overcook, or they will be soggy. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a shallow ovenproof serving dish. Gently simmer cream in a saucepan until melted. Pour over hot gnocchi and serve.
