Method Place pasta flour into a food processor and pulse. Add oil and pulse, and then egg yolks - it should look granular. Empty on to work surface and knead into smooth dough. Rest.

For the white bean cappuccino, reduce stock to 220ml. Purée beans in liquidiser, then scrape into clean bowl. Using a hand blender, slowly blend stock, adding cream. Season to taste and pour sauce into saucepan. Bring back to boil and remove. Whisk in foie gras and truffle oil. To stabilise sauce, add chilled butter. Foam to order.

For the ravioli, roll out pasta to thinnest setting on pasta machine. Place small amount of chicken mousse on pasta, at well-spaced intervals. Roll out another long strip, moisten around each mound of chicken mousse with water. Place new strip over bottom layer, seal pasta around mounds of chicken mousse. Cut with large fluted cutter, check seals are intact.

Place into boiling salted water, then simmer until chicken mousse is cooked through. Remove from water and place into white bean sauce to coat.

To assemble, place a portion of pancetta and warmed tomato and mushroom fondue in the centre of plate. Wilt spinach and rocket, and place a small amount on top of tomato and pancetta. Place one large raviolo on top of leaves. Spoon foamed sauce over raviolo. Drizzle truffle oil around plate or bowl, dust with powdered mushrooms.
