Method
1.
To make the polenta ravioli mix, bring the water to the boil and then rain in the polenta. Cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Make sure you don't let the polenta dry out and stick to the bottom of the pan. Add a little more water if necessary
2.
Blend with the Parmesan, butter and olive oil. Pass through a fine sieve then pour into a 1cm-deep tray and leave to set in the fridge
3.
To make the artichoke barigoule, peel off the outer leaves of the artichokes and snap off the stalks. Pull out the soft inner leaves. Scrape out the hairy choke. You should now just have a cleaned base

4.
Put the artichokes in a vacpac bag with all the other ingredients. Give it a full vacuum and gently steam for 23 minutes. Cool and chill quickly
5.
To make the pasta, whizz the flour and eggs in a food processor to make a dough. Wrap and leave to rest for 20 minutes
6.
To make the chicken stock, bring the chicken to the boil in the water and skim well. Simmer for 2 hours then add all the vegetables
7.
Cook for a further 2 hours. Ladle out through a sieve from the top leaving the remaining vegetable and bone sediment at the bottom
8.
To make the ravioli using a pasta machine, roll the pasta out, making 7 passes on the widest setting. Working down the settings, keep rolling until it is 3mm thick making sure it does not tear. Cut in half
9.
Remove the set polenta from the fridge and cut into small circles. Lay on the bottom half of the pasta. Cover the polenta with the top part of the pasta and seal well, making sure you leave no gaps through which the filling might escape
10.
Using a serrated edged pasta cutter, cut into triangles. Leave on a tray covered with polenta until needed
11.
To plate for each serving, heat 100ml of stock with 20g of butter, 10g of chopped truffle, 5 pieces of oven-dried tomato and three artichoke halves in a pan
12.
Blanch 3 polenta raviolis in seasoned boiling water for two minutes then add to the truffled butter mix and reduce until a glazing consistency. Cover liberally with more sliced truffle
