Mashed Potatoes

  1. Peel the boiled potatoes while still hot and use a mashing spoon to roughly mash the potatoes.
  2. Add the butter, cream, salt & pepper and mash until there a few lumps (do not over mash it as it will become gooey).
  3. Drizzle the mash with truffle oil and stir gently until evenly incorporated. 

Asparagus

  1. Blanch the asparagus in lightly salted boiling water for about 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; do not overcook.
  2. Remove from heat and refresh under cold water; drain well.

Beef Fillet

  1. Heat a skillet on high heat. 
  2. Add a drizzle of olive oil then place your fillets on the skillet and sear for 2-3 min on each side. Do not press on the steak to avoid losing the juices.
  3. When ready, sprinkle some sea salt and freshly ground black pepper on the fillets.
