Meet Andi and Carissa.
Andi Richardson is our Senior Sous Chef and Carissa is one of our Cohort 13 apprentices. This autumn as we launched our All Italian menu for you to enjoy, Andi selected Squash and ricotta ravioli with butternut squash sauce as a dish to show Carissa and pass on some of his specialist knowledge.
As one of the first dishes he ever learned when he first joined Fifteen Cornwall, Andi and Carissa talk about why they love it and you will too.
Why did you think this was a good dish to pass onto Carissa? It’s a really tasty dish and autumn is the best time for squash. We buy ours locally from Meg at One Field Farm and it’s an ideal dish to show off the amazing produce.
Why does the ravioli shape work well in this dish? The butternut squash sauce is really nice and delicate and the ravioli goes really well with that. A couple of weeks ago I had it at the River Cafe and it reminded me how delicious it is so I wanted to bring it back into the Fifteen kitchen for the All Italian menu.
