6 – 8 servings


7.5 cups of all-purpose flour

7 eggs

5 yolks

1 tbsp olive oil

1 kg celeriac (peeled and cut into small cubes)

1 cup butter

1 sprig of thyme

1 cup chicken or vegetable stock

1 cup heavy cream

2 tsp kosher salt

2 tsp ground black pepper

250g grated Grana Padano cheese


  1. Combine eggs, yolks and olive oil.
  2. Slowly incorporate wet mixture into flour.
  3. Once dough has come together, knead for 15 minutes until elasticity is formed. Rest for one hour before use.
  4. While dough it resting, roast celeriac in butter with sprig of thyme on low heat until soft and caramelized.
  5. Once roasted, strain fat and remove thyme. Add stock and cream to celeriac and reduce by half.
  6. Transfer to a blender and puree till smooth.
  7. Transfer purée to a bowl, add cheese, salt and pepper then allow to cool.
  8. Once dough has rested and filling has cooled, use a rolling pin and flour to roll out your dough into a sheet. Use a ravioli maker to fill and seal your ravioli. If you don’t have a ravioli maker, you can use a round cookie cutter or an upside-down glass to cut your pasta circles, and seal your ravioli by brushing water on the edges of your circles before pressing them together.
