Pumpkin ravioli with sage

Ravioli may be time-consuming to make, but they can be made ahead and stored wrapped in plastic wrap between layers of baking paper in the fridge, ready for the pot; just make sure you dust them with semolina to keep them dry and prevent them from sticking. We've used butternut here - true to its name, it's rich and creamy and will yield the perfect texture for this luxe ravioli.

White anchovy dakos


You'll need

4 thick slices sourdough bread, cut into thirds 2 vine-ripened tomatoes, coarsely chopped 12 white anchovy fillets To serve: extra-virgin olive oil and lemon wedges   Pickled fennel 1 fennel bulb, shaved on a mandolin 150 ml white wine vinegar 150 ml extra-virgin olive oil 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced 1 tbsp each fennel seeds and coriander seeds, dry-roasted ¼ cup each (loosely packed) flat-leaf parsley and coriander, coarsely chopped   Preserved lemon mayonnaise 2 egg yolks 1 tsp Dijon mustard 1 tbsp lemon juice 100 ml each olive oil and vegetable oil 20 gm preserved lemons, rinsed, flesh discarded, rind finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Place bread in a single layer on a tray in a warm place until it starts to dry out (overnight).
