Mushroom Ravioli, Chicken Mushroom Sauce Emulsion Recipe

Makes ≈ 24 Ravioli / Serves 8.
Wonton wrappers square or pasta dough ravioli squares.
1 ounce (30g) dry porcini mushroom
1.4lb (650g) button mushrooms
1 Tbsp (15g) butter
1 Tbspc(15ml) olive oil
1 Tbsp (10g) flour (optional)
A pinch of salt.

A day ahead, soak dry porcini mushroom in cold water to cover and refrigerate overnight (it can be made a few days in advance). Drain porcini, squeeze and chop. Save porcini broth for the sauce.
Give button mushrooms a quick wash, drain and pat dry. Trim off bottoms and cut in four. In a food processor, give a few pulses until finely chopped but not pureed (process mushrooms in 3 batches). In a large hot oven proof skillet or rondo, add fat and saute duxelles and chopped porcini for 10 minutes on high heat. Add a pinch of salt and sift flour over (optional though); stir well. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Finish cooking in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

Shallot Port Reduction
2.6 ounces (80g) shallots, minced
3 garlic cloves, crushed (skin on)
1 Tbsp (15g) butter
1 cup (250ml) ruby port.
Mince shallots. In a medium size frying pan, sweat shallots, crushed garlic until soft and translucent but not browning; about 5 min on low heat. Deglaze with port, bring to boil and reduce to dry on medium heat. Discard garlic and set aside.

Chicken Porcini Sauce
3 cups (750ml) chicken stock (check out recipe on my website)
1 cup (250ml) porcini broth
A couple of parsley stems and thyme
A few black peppercorns.
3 Tbsp (45g) butter (European style), cubed and chilled.
Bring to boil stocks, herbs and pepperconrs and reduce volume by more than half. Drain and discard solids. Right before serving, reheat sauce and whisk in butter to melt. Remove from heat and blend until foamy. This sauce can also be lightly thickened with a bit of roux or cornstarch disolved in cold stock or Marsala.

Mushroom Filling
Cooked mushroom duxelles
Reduced shallot port mixture
1 Tbsp (15g) parmesan, grated (optional)
3 ounces (90g) ricotta cheese
Salt, ground black pepper, a few drops of white truffle oil (optional).
Mix the warm duxelles with the shallot port mixture. Add parmesan and ricotta cheese. Season with salt, ground black pepper and truffle oil. Transfer the finished duxelles in a clean container, wrap up and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Lightly brush edge of wrapper with water or egg wash. Pipe out one ounce (30g) in center of the wrapper (one or 2 at the time), seal corners against each other from its base pressing out any trapped air. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling, keeping wrappers covered as you work. Refrigerate ravioli for up to 3 days; covered.
Cook ravioli in 3 batches in a pot of salted boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes per batch removing with slotted spoon. Keep warm.
Arrange 3 ravioli per plate. Cover with 1/4 cup (60ml) of the emultioned chicken porcini sauce. Garnish with finely chopped parsley / parmesan shavings / a few drops of extra virgin olive oil / a pinch of fleur de sel and ground black pepper – Enjoy!.
