Fried cuttlefish. Clean the cuttlefish, dry with kitchen paper and dip in the flour. Shake vigorously to cover all wet parts thoroughly and at the same time eliminate excess flour. Meanwhile, heat the peanut oil in a tall and narrow pan (to contain the splashing oil of the deep frying cuttlefish). Dip squid in oil a few at a time and pull up with a slotted spoon when they are light golden brown. Drain and lay on a sheet of kitchen paper to be changed often. Transfer to another paper and keep warm, adding salt at the end.
Pea gelato. Stir in peas with a little olive oil, salt, black pepper, a splash of red wine vinegar and fresh mint in the Thermomix for 4 minutes at speed 4. Pour into ice cream cups and eat immediately with cuttlefish still warm and fragrant. The Thermomix, the common home appliance, makes it possible to make ice cream and sorbets using flash frozen fruits or vegetables. Alternatively, blend peas into a blender or food processor and mix by hand with an ice cream spatula..
