Ravioli with teruel black truffle

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 300g of pasta flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 100ml of ruby port
  • 50ml of Madeira
  • 25ml of brandy
  • 400ml of brown chicken stock
  • 400ml of truffle juice
  • 240g of butter
  • 40ml of truffle oil
  • 10g of salt
  • 16g of gelatine


Roll the pasta dough through a pasta machine, starting from the widest setting, and gradually going down the settings until the arrow is between 0 and 1. Fold the dough in half before rolling through, on settings 10, 7, 4, and 2. This will help develop the gluten and strengthen the dough
Repeat the rolling process on the last setting to ensure there is a consistent finish to the thickness of the dough. The pasta should be dry, but with no cracks and slightly elastic
Fold the final piece of dough in half and cut a thin strip at the folded edge to create 2 sheets of pasta of the same size. Place 1 sheet on a lightly floured work surface and using a pastry brush, apply a light even coat of the egg wash
Remove the truffle filling from the moulds and place in 2 even rows of 4 along the base sheet of pasta. Place the other sheet of pasta and gently cover the truffle balls. Gently stretch the dough over to meet the edges of the bottom pasta sheet and press gently around each truffle ball to form a dome
Using a 3cm pastry cutter, cut out the raviolis around the truffle balls. Pick each ravioli up individually and using your thumb and forefinger, squeeze out any air and seal the edges. Store on a tray lined with a clean tea towel. Repeat the process until all of the truffle balls are enclosed
Cook the ravioli in salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes, until the pasta is just cooked. Remove from the boiling water and toss in a bowl with a little truffle oil and sea salt
To serve, place the ravioli on to a spoon or small serving dish. Garnish with the pea shoots, Parmesan shavings and a slice of fresh truffle. Serve immediately
