1 lemon zest

½ vanilla pod

Peel and finely cut carrots and grate ginger. In a large saucepan, heat oil, add carrots, ginger, shallots in oil and broth. Cook over low heat until carrots are cooked, then add salt and pepper.

Transfer everything into the blender’s jar and blend until you obtain a smooth and homogeneous cream, sieve through a fine-mesh strainer. Let cool. Cook peas in boiling water, cool in water and ice bath. Blend peas and the other ingredients until you obtain a smooth and homogeneous cream, sieve through a fine-mesh strainer. Let cool.

Coarsely chop celery, carrots, onion, shallot and mushrooms, brown in a saucepan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and add prawn carapaces. After a couple of minutes, blend with wine and cognac, let alcohol evaporate, cover with water, add tomato concentrate and let it boil for at least an hour. Filter mixture with the help of a Chinese strainer, crushing carapaces well to extract all the flavour. Finely cut ventricina and dry it in the oven at 120°C for 20 minutes.

Crumble and store in an airtight container. Cook Tortelli ai crostacei in plenty of boiling water for about 4-5 minutes, drain and coat them with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. On a flat plate, arrange carrot and ginger velouté, then Tortelli ai crostacei and add all remaining ingredients.
