The recipe

Tartare flavored with truffle and porcini salad

Remove the fatty parts from the fillet. Cut a 300 g fillet into slices, then julienne and then into cubes. Then chop it slightly with a knife. Dress it with the peppercorns, salt and truffle oil. But first, clean the truffle washing it and then rubbing it with a brush to remove any soil residues. Dry well and cut into strips. Use the tartare as a ball, add a drop of truffle oil and some flakes of black truffle. At the same time, clean 4 porcini mushrooms scraping the soil residues and cleaning them with dry kitchen paper. Arrange the sliced chapels on a serving tray, spread the freshly cut mushrooms on top and season with a nice round of extra virgin olive oil and some salt flakes. Enjoy the dish with some parmesan flakes and a splash of lime juice.
