1
For the celeriac, bring a pot of salted water to a simmer and then cook the celeriac until tender but not soggy. Drain well
  • 1 celeriac
  • salt
2
Use a potato masher to crush the hot celeriac with the butter, a pinch of white pepper and salt to taste. Keep warm until needed
  • 75g of butter
  • white pepper
3
Preheat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3. Place a generous spoonful of the celeriac into each serving dish, make a well in the centre large enough to hold an egg. Add the egg and top each with a tsp of cream and butter. Place in the oven for approximately 8 minutes, or until the egg is cooked to your preference - the egg should be runny enough to sauce the dish
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tsp double cream
  • 4 tsp butter
4
Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil over a medium heat, and once sufficiently hot - around 180°C - fry the celery leaves until crisp. Drain well on kitchen towel and season with salt
  • 100ml of vegetable oil
  • 2 2/3 handfuls of celery leaves
  • sea salt
5
To serve, top each egg with the crispy celery leaves, croutons, Madeira sauce and a slice of truffle. Season and serve immediately
  • 2 1/2 tbsp of Madeira sauce
  • 2 tbsp of croutons
  • 1 truffle
