Gnocchi is a kind of small Italian pasta/dumpling made with flour and potatoes (very tasty and one of my faves with a little vodka sauce).

Gallet is a sort of casserole made of layers of sliced potatoes. Usually includes butter and rosemary although I have seen many variations.

I had some chestnut gnocchi at a restaurant in SF last year. It was pretty good, but a little sticky in texture. I think the chef used chestnut flour- perhaps in an attempt to make it gluten free? I talked to the chef quite awhile and didn't get around to asking.

I make Gnocci from scratch. Fun for the whole family. It is made with a tomato sauce and lamb meat. I also make it with game meat, mainly mouflon (mountain sheep).

You got it, thanks.
Galley is thinly sliced potatoes (think chip thin) layered in a large pan, with butter, rosemary, and salt between each layer
, 3-4 layers. Pressed down as much as yo can, fried until crispy, flip onto a plate, then FRY other side.
I like to add very thin onion shavings to the layers, though tis keeps it from getting really crispy all the way through. Kind of steams the middle.
I also like white pepper throughout.
