    • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
    • 30 grams (1/3 cup) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 bag of minced chives
    • 1 sprig of rosemary (leaves removed and minced)
    • Lots of salt and pepper

    SUGGESTED SIDE

    • Thick homemade chips
  • Preparation

    • Use a blender to whip the ricotta and olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes until creamy. Add the remaining sauce ingredients. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let the flavours bind.
    • Combine all broth ingredients but the cream in a large pot, bring to a boil and maintain for 3 minutes.
    • Reduce, add the cream and simmer for another 15 minutes, stirring regularly. Add salt and pepper to taste.
    • Meanwhile, place the dipping ingredients on a serving platter.
    • Strain the broth through a sieve and pour it into the Fondussimo bowl.

    A few tips

    • To prepare the parsnip and potato ribbons, remove the skin with a peeler, then cut the flesh into long strips. To preserve the colour of the potato ribbons, immerse them in cold acidic water (with lemon or vinegar).
    • For even tastier mussels, scoop out a small amount of broth and use the shells like little spoons to enjoy it.
