Sauté the herbs, lemon peel and garlic in a little olive oil and extinguish the heat with chicken stock. Add the crème fraiche and cream, cook for 2 minutes, then whisk until frothy.
Dry the slices of Prosciutto di San Daniele in the oven and grind to a powder.
Cut the potato into four slices. Deep-fry them for 10 minutes in the fryer at 120 C followed by 5 minutes at 180 C until they are golden. Spread some ketchup on each slice and sprinkle with the San Daniele crumbs.
Process all ingredients to a smooth pesto.
Serve the Grana Padano shake in short glasses with San Daniele potato slices and pesto on the side. Garnish with a slice of Prosciutto di San Daniele.
