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.

Walnut and caramelised onion-stuffed pork


You'll need

130 gm (½ cup) pickled sliced Spanish onions (see note) 75 gm walnut pieces, roasted and finely chopped 1 tbsp rosemary sprigs, finely chopped 2 pork fillets (about 400gm each), halved widthways ¼ cup olive oil 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 400 gm young cavolo nero, stalks trimmed ½ bunch (about 375gm) of chicory, stalks trimmed 3 tsp fig vincotto (see note) 6 black figs, quartered 100 gm amber walnuts (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Combine pickled onion, walnuts and rosemary in a small bowl. Place pork fillets on a chopping board and cut down the centre, three-quarters of the way through to butterfly, open, then spoon onion mixture evenly over pork, and tie at 5cm intervals with kitchen string to enclose.
  • 02
  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, add pork and cook over high heat, turning occasionally until golden all over. Transfer pork to a roasting pan, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then cook at 180C for 10 minutes or until pork is just cooked through.
  • 03
  • Heat remaining olive oil in a large frying pan, add garlic, cavolo nero and chicory and cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until just wilted, then add fig vincotto and stir to combine.
  • 04
  • Divide greens among plates, scatter with fig quarters and walnuts, top with pork and serve immediately.
