For asparagus puree: Prepare an onion and potato base, then simmer and reduce the onions with wine and bake the potato; in the meantime blanch the asparagus for as little as 5 minutes, let them cool quickly and centrifuge by adding the base. Then filter with a colander.
For Bearnaise Sauce: Beat the yolk, adding the reduced wine vinegar and wine, then mix a dash of lukewarm clarified butter with the bain-marie and emulsify it as a mayonnaise.
For the yoke: Boil 1 egg for 8 minutes, allow it to cool and shell it to get the yolk. Sift until powdery.
For cooking the risolio: Toast the rice brown by bathing it regularly with vegetable broth and 4 minutes before whisking mix in the asparagus puree. Finish off by whisking in with De Carlo oil, parmesan cheese and lemon over a flame.
For serving: Having whisked the risolio, put the baby squid and asparagus tips on to plates, place it all on some risolio with a Bearnaise asparagus carpaccio and egg yolk powder.
