For the ravioli batter:

  • 5 Pc. Eggs
  • 500 g Flour
  • 1 shot Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Salt

For the pear reduction:

  • 700 ml Pear juice
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Starch
  • 1 pinch Salt

For the pear chip:

  • 3 Pc. Pears
  • 1 pinch Salt

For the filling:

  • 120 g Goat cheese
  • 3 Pc. Pears
  • 3 Pc. Garlic cloves
  • 1 Pc. Shallot
  • 2 tbsp Pear reduction
  • Fennel green
  • Thyme
  • Chili
  • Salt
  • Pepper

For the goat cheese cream:

  • 100 g Goat cheese
  • 50 g Creme fraiche Cheese
  • Rosemary

For the sage butter:

  • 200 g Butter
  • 100 ml White wine
  • 5 Pc. Sage leaves
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • For the dough, mix the eggs, oil and salt together and gradually add the flour so that an elastic dough is formed (can also be less than 500 grams of flour, the dough can still be a bit sticky). Then wrap the dough in some foil and let it rest in the refrigerator until further processing.
  • In parallel, start the pear reduction by reducing a bottle of pear juice to approx. 1/3 and then binding it with the starch dissolved in water. Then salt a little and add honey.
  • For the pear chips, grate the pears into thin slices with a slicer and spread them on a baking sheet, add a little salt and leave to dry in the oven at approx. 180 ° C for 15 minutes.
  • Mix together all the ingredients for the filling of the ravioli.
  • Take the dough out of the refrigerator and roll it out thinly in portions on a floured work surface with a rolling pin, turn the dough over and over again and flour if necessary. The dough should be thin enough that you can easily see through it.
  • Halve the rolled-out strip of dough in the middle and distribute the filling evenly on one side of the dough. Lightly water the dough, then place the other side of the dough over the first and press it down so that any air pockets disappear.
  • Use a ravioli cutter to cut the dumplings into squares and store the ravioli in the refrigerator until further processing. Repeat these steps until the batter is used up or the filling is empty.
  • For the goat cheese cream, mix all the ingredients together so that it has a creamy consistency. Put the cream in a piping bag.
  • Make the sage butter shortly before serving by melting the butter, deglazing it with the wine and boiling it with the spices.
  • Slice the fennel thinly so that the structure of the fennel is preserved. Sear the fennel in a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper.
  • Spread the goat cheese cream decoratively on the edge of the plate and place a pear chip on each.
  • Bring the water with salt to a boil and let the prepared ravioli cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Place the fennel on the plate, place three ravioli per plate on top of the fennel, drizzle with sage butter and pear reduction and decorate with a little fennel green.
