Ingredients (4 people)


  • 8 3/4 ounces ricotta cheese (250 g)
  • 1 1/4 ounces flour (35 g)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (10 cl)
  • 1 3/4 ounces puréed watercress (50 g)


Step 1: Gnocchi

Put all the white gnocchi ingredients into a blender, season and mix until smooth.

Repeat for the green gnocchi dough.

Heat salted water in a large saucepan. With two spoons, make quenelles of gnocchi dough, and poach in simmering water. The gnocchi is cooked when it rises to the surface. Cool immediately in ice water and set aside on a greased rack.

Step 2: Sauce

Cut the Jabugo ham into small triangles. Wash the gem lettuce, and remove most of the green to retain mainly the stalks.

Clean the chanterelles, wash in a large amount of water, and drain.

Sauté the chanterelles once to get rid of the excess moisture, and drain.

Sauté again in brown butter, and season with fleur de sel and freshly ground pepper.
