Method

Pipe a scrolled border of Pommes Duchesse mixture around the edges of scollop shells; brush with a little beaten egg and colour in the oven.

Coat the bottom of each shell with a little Sauce Allemande, fill with thin slices of cooked brains and arrange a circle of slices of mushroom and truffle on top with a small cooked mushroom in the centre.

Cover with nicely buttered Sauce Allemande and glaze quickly under the salamander.
