Add salt, pepper, cream, milk and chicken stock and simmer for 20 minutes. Liquidise and put in a saucepan. To make the filling, heat the oil in a sauté pan until very hot then add the mushrooms and sear for a few minutes. Add the shallots and butter. When the shallots have softened add the parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Leave to cool. Roll out the pasta on a machine until almost thin enough to see through. Divide into eight pieces. Put two dessertspoons of mushroom mix into the centre of the pasta sheet. Brush egg yolk around the mix then fold over the remaining pasta and press the whole ravioli in between both hands, squeezing out the air bubbles and sealing the mushrooms inside. Cook in boiling water with salt and oil for two minutes then plunge into iced water and reserve. To serve, blitz the sauce to a froth, pour it over the pasta and garnish with basil purée.
