  1. For the truffled duck, warm up the beef stock with the thyme and the bay leaf in a saucepan.

  2. Place the duck legs in a solid steam container, pour over the warmed stock. Cover with a lid. Place in the Miele Freestanding Steam Oven and steam on 100°C for 3 hours.

  3. When cool enough to handle, shred the duck meat very finely and mix it with the cep and truffle paste, soy sauce and enough chicken stock to bind together.

  4. Spoon the mixture into four heatproof plates or bowls and crack a duck egg in the middle. Cover each plate with cling film and steam on 75°C for 6 minutes.

  5. To serve, add some sliced shallot, spring onions, cornichons, watercress, celery and nasturtium leaves on to each plate.
