Gradually fold in the whipped cream, and season with salt and pepper. Inject the mousse into the rolls of Speck Alto Adige PGI by means of a piping bag. Sprinkle with chives and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Celery salad:

Wash and prepare the branches of celery. Peel them somewhat before cutting them into thin slices. Marinate in olive oil and cider vinegar with dill, salt, and pepper.

Finishing:

Dish up the celery salad, place the mascarpone mousse rolled in Speck Alto Adige PGI on top, plant the chive stalks in the mousse, garnish with herbal oil and sprigs of basil, and serve.

You can use various types of lettuce or an avocado salad as accompaniment to the mascarpone mousse. Mix 1 teaspoon of grated horseradish into the mousse.
