Preparation method:

For the fondue: pour the fresh cream into a pan and add the Parmesan cheese. Cook over a low heat for about 2 minutes to obtain a smooth cheese sauce.

For the timbale: cut the aubergines lengthwise into 8mm-thick slices. Place in a colander, sprinkle liberally with coarse salt and set aside for about 1 hour. Rinse and dry the aubergine slices, flour lightly and then fry in hot oil for a few minutes. Grease some disposable moulds with a drop of oil and line with a slice of aubergine. Fill with tomato purée, sliced mozzarella, thinly-sliced mortadella and more aubergine. Repeat the same ingredients to make a second layer. Cook in the oven at 180°C for 20 minutes.

Once cooked, remove the timbales from the moulds and serve with the Parmesan cheese fondue.
