Simple, elegant and absolutely delicious, the egg yolk ravioli is one of the culinary world’s many wonders. Homemade pasta and a simple egg yolk filling makes this dish’s simplicity seem ultra gourmet. The only trick is to have patience, soft hands and a delicate touch to avoid the yolks from breaking. Otherwise, this dish can be yours. See how our culinary school chef works the homemade pasta dough using a pasta maker, carefully places the egg yolks in the middle, even more carefully encloses the ravioli and gently boils it till the pasta is cooked and the center is still soft. Once you’ve made your own egg yolk ravioli, you’ll have these on a constant recipe rotation.
