Kuchenprofi Dumpling Makers
We were making a big deal dinner last weekend, and one of the highlight dishes was ravioli stuffed with a mixture of foie gras, chestnut puree and brandy, served with crispy duck confit and chives in a concentrated infused broth. We were very pleased with the way it turned out. But we were even more pleased with how easy it was to make.
I love making ravioli as a special first course because the impressiveness to work ratio is great (very impressive, for not that much work), and we posted a Cool Tip about using wonton skins as the pasta. But this time the ravioli were even easier...
You can use this with either pasta or dough, and the base can be used as a “cookie cutter” to cut the pasta or dough to the right size. Just cut the dough or pasta, lay it across the mold, put the filling in the center, then close the mold and press to make closed poacket. The possibilities are endless: dumplings, pierogi, ravioli, turnovers, pot stickers, empanadas, little calzone, hand pies...anything with a dough or pasta outside and a filling.
It’s fun, it’s easy, kids would love to help...and the results are delicious!
