Lobster tortellini with lobster foam and charred cipollini onions

Serves 10 as part of a taster menu, 4-6 if served as a free standing dish

Pasta dough

  • 90 g    Durum wheat
  • 90 g    Plain flour
  • 3 tbsp Chive water*
  • 1  Egg
  • 2  Egg yolk

*Chive water is made by taking approx 20 g of Chives, run in a blender with 3 tbsp water until you have a vivid green liquid. Strain, removing all remaining chive bits.

Place the ingredients in the mixer and blend to an even dough. Place the dough in a vacuum bag and seal. Allow to rest in the fridge for 30 mins.


  • ½  Baking potato
  • 30 g  Butter Arla®
  • 15 g Plain flour
  • 100 g Milk Arla®
  • 50 g Double Cream Arla®
  • 1  Live lobster

Roast the baking potatoe with the skin on at 180°C for 60 min.

Kill the lobster with a knife. Cook the claws and tail in salted water for 3 minutes. Remove the flesh and chop into smaller pieces, saving the shell for later. Scoop out the flesh from the potato, keeping the skin for later. Melt the butter and whisk the flour in a little at a time. Whisk in the milk/cream, making a bechamel. Cook until thickened (whilst whisking). Press the potato flesh into the sauce and fold through. Add the lobster pieces and season with salt and pepper. Place the filling in a piping bag and allow to cool.
