It's gonna be this. I ran this last night as well, because I wanted to do something where the plating was fairly simple and it would understate what the dish would actually taste like. Usually I have a ton of different colors and multiple sauces. This is like going back to basics of sorts:

Grilled Niman Ranch Filet Mignon (7 oz.) with Sauce Perigueux and Shaved Truffle
Roasted King Trumpet Mushrooms, Creamed Sweet Corn, Sauteed Vegetables, Buttermilk-Garlic Whipped Potatoes


Sauce Perigueux is a French sauce consisting of demi glace, truffles, cognac, and foie gras. The shaved truffles aren't shown in the display plate. The servers shave it tableside.

I made haddock, rice, and peas for my hubby, and bought a pinwheel of salmon for myself which was stuffed with feta and spinach. It was ok at first, but a bit sickly from the cheese filling.

We had duck breast with pickled cherries, potatoes, broccoli, carrots. I made the cherries before Christmas and they are just the right accompaniment. The recipe is on my website http://cookingdownunder.com/courses/misc/misc216.htm
for those of you coming into the cherry season.
