Begin by preparing the choux pastry. Place the water, salt, sugar and butter in a small pan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, then add the flour and mix well with a wooden spoon
  • 300ml of water
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 115g of butter
  • 150g of plain flour
2
Return to a low heat and mix well for 45 seconds to dry the mix slightly. Remove from the heat again and mix in the eggs one by one, stirring well with a spoon after each addition. Once the eggs are incorporated, set aside to cool
  • 4 eggs
3
Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Melt the butter in a small saucepan until foaming and golden brown, then add the flour. Stir well with a wooden spoon, pour in the milk and mix well with a whisk to remove any lumps. Season, add the grated cheddar, then taste and season to taste. Set aside
  • 25g of butter
  • 25g of plain flour
  • 250ml of milk

Sprinkle the top of the buns with a little Parmesan, then bake in the oven for approximately 10 minutes, or until golden brown and dried on the outside

Heat a dash of olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Once the oil is hot, cook the mushrooms for 5-6 minutes until all the moisture has been released.

  • 250g of wild mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp tarragon
  • 1 tbsp of parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Stir the mushrooms through the cheese sauce, add the truffle oil and place in a piping bag with a small cut at the end. Fill each of the choux buns, then dip the top of each bun in the cep powder to lightly coat. Arrange the buns on a platter decorated with mushrooms and serve
  • 3 tbsp of cep powder
  • 2 tsp truffle oil
