Lava landscape made of old bread:

Ingredients:

1 bowl Nero di Seppia fish broth (see recipe above)

3 pieces of baguette (can be old baguette or other white bread: ciabatta, rolls etc.)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 120 degrees Celsius.

Form any shape:

In a bowl, dip baguette pieces in fish broth / Nero di Seppia. Form different shapes with the paste. Bake in the open at 120 degrees until the moulds are a little crispy on the outside but still a little soft on the inside.

"Lavastones". Bread croquettes with mojo salsa:

Some shapes may be deformed at this stage. Here, two hollow halved spheres can be formed, so that the two closed halves can be formed into one hollow sphere. Fill one half with the mojo salsa, then cover with the other half and close by hand (as they are still a little moist).

Bake until the bread and croquettes are crispy on the outside.
