  • 1 small celery root, peeled and cut into cubes 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a large saucepan filled with boiling water, cook potatoes and celery root for 25 to 30 minutes, or until vegetables are very tender. Drain and return to the pan.
  2. Over medium heat, add milk and butter and melt while stirring. Add salt and pepper to taste. Puree and reserve.

  6. Add the filet mignon, rub in the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the meat is well colored. Season with salt and pepper generously.
  7. Flip the meat over and continue cooking for 3 to 4 minutes. Salt and pepper generously. Depending on the thickness of your steak, it should be rare at this point. Remove from heat, place on a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, heat the same skillet over medium high heat. Add the slices of foie gras then season with salt and pepper generously. Cook for 1 minute per side. Remove from the pan and set aside.
