Agnolotti

Recommended Posts

Thanks Johnny!

BTW, how do you sauce these veg based agnolotti? A simple herbed butter (like in Piemonte)

or something else?

Youre Very Welcome!

I cant recall off the top of my head what the sauce was for the celery root ango. I will find out tomorrow when I get in the kitchen. As for the others, the basil ango had a tomato butter ( reduced tomato water, then whisked in butter) with crispy basil, the butternut ango has a sage cream with pecans and crispy sage, forest mushroom ango with a duxelle cream, and the carrot ango was simply with a little buerre monte with parsley.

Word.

Let me know which one you would like. Or all of them if you want.

Butternut squash, please, Chef Johnny. We've got a glut of them here in Devon.

Sorry about the delay in posting. Ive been away for a week. Back to business.

Butternut Squash Farce for angolotti

Just to start off, at the restaurant we cook the butternut sous vide. If you do not have access to a vaccum sealer, I would suggest roasting the squash.

Peel the squash and seed the bulb end. Slice everything into evenly small pieces. Toast some fall spices, i.e. star anise, cinnamon, black pepper, all spice, cloves, etc. and grind in a coffee mill/spice grinder. Combine squash, spices a little sugar and salt and roughly 1/4 cup EVO in a big bowl and coat. Into the vac bag and sous vide until soft. While HOT, spin in blender and pass through a tamis.

Thats the farce. We use it with Fines Herbs pasta in a sage cream with pecans and crispy sage.

Enjoy.

recommended time and temp for the butternut (I would assume about 180 for 4-12 hours depending on how thick the cuts are)? How sparse should the cloves be in the spice mix, I would think that they could become a little overwhelming if you weren't careful.

85C-ish on the bath?

Zchef, today I tried it at 90C for two hours, perfectly soft and smooth results, I am sure you could go lower temp wise but I wasnt in the mood for experimentation since it was being cooked to break down cellulose....like mushy soft.

Although I did *not* do the spices in the bag like Johnny said......I added them in the food processor during the puree phase. I feel this gives better control of the spice profile and seasoning just as s_sevilla suggested.

Looking forward to making some pasta tommorow.

      I'll be in Naples for a few days next month and I wanted to try something traditional, and my friend recommended trying parmigiana. She said she loved it, but the problem is that she ate it at her Italian friend's house, and I won't be able to have that exact parmigiana. So, I did some research online and found a few restaurants that have good ratings and are serving allegedly great eggplant casserole. This place is 4 stars rated, but people seem not to agree whether the parmigiana is good or not.... On the other hand, this place has a great rating, appears when searching for the parmigiana, but nobody seems to write about it in their reviews. Finally, this one is said to have the best parmigiana in Naples (or in the world, for that matter), and I wanted to know if anyone had the so-called world's best?
      I would really appreciate if you could help me make the decision. Looking forward to your advice!

      I recently took a trip to Northern Italy, and was delighted to find that the cappuccino everywhere was just wonderful, without exception. Smooth, flavorful, aromatic perfect crema, strong but not too strong.
      Aside from the obvious answer (duh, Italians created cappuccino ), what makes Italian capp so fantastic, and how do I duplicate the effect here?
      I'm wondering if it's the water, the way the coffee is ground or stored, the machines used....I'm baffled.
      Also noticed that the serving size tended to be smaller than what I'm used to -- i.e. a small teacupful vs. a brimming mug or Starbucks supersize. Not sure why that is either.
      Grazie mille for any insight on this!

      My article was published (my first one!)! Hooray! And I do have some Florentine restaurant recommendations including the new Osteria del Pavone which is amazing--lampredotto ravioli is now a thing and it must be tried.
