Colatura di Parmigiano and its air, poached egg, asparagus and potatoes

Preparation time 20 minutes

Portions 2 people


Cream 5 tablespoons

Green asparagus 6

Eggs 1

2 tablespoons grated 24 month Parmesan cheese

Water to taste

White vinegar 1 tablespoon

Fine salt to taste

Extra virgin olive oil 1 thread

Potato 1 small

Turmeric 1 tablespoon

White pepper


Wash and dry the asparagus. Remove the leathery part of the stalk with your fingers, keeping the soft part which includes the tip. Boil the asparagus in salted boiling water for about 5 minutes and, when they are cooked but still crispy, transfer them to a plate with paper towels to dry.

In the same water pour 1 tablespoon of turmeric, while waiting for it to come to the boil, peel the potatoes and with a small spoon try to obtain small spheres, which should cook for a couple of minutes.

For the air we use the parmesan rinds which will have to boil for about ten minutes in a small saucepan as if it were a broth, once this is done, remove the rinds from the water and bind the mixture with some lecithin with the help of an immersion blender, let it rest.

Pour the cream into a small saucepan and heat it slowly over a low flame. Put the water in another saucepan together with the vinegar and bring it to the boil. Break the egg into a bowl. Using a whisk, create a vortex in the saucepan and gently dip the egg into it.

As the white congeals all around the egg enclosing the yolk inside, take it out of the water with a slotted skimmer, drain it well and transfer it to a plate with paper towels and lightly salt it.

As the cream heats up, pour in the Parmesan cheese, stirring to obtain a smooth, velvety cream. Arrange the asparagus on the single serving plate. Arrange the poached egg on top and sprinkle the Parmesan over it. Dress with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and complete the composition with a few edible flowers.

Ready to be served at the table!
