  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 8 ounces leeks (or scallions), white part only, thinly sliced

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • 2 tablespoons Caviar butter

  • 12 ounces mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 cup heavy cream, warmed


  • 1 tablespoon Caviar butter

  • 4 filet mignons, Omaha Steaks, 6 ounces each

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1/2 cup Scotch whiskey

Additional Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 4 slices French bread


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

  2. Place the potatoes, leeks, and olive oil in a mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper.

  3. Gently toss to mix well. Transfer to a 6 by 9-inch baking dish and pat gently to form an even layer.

  4. Cover the dish with foil and bake in the oven for 1-1/2 hours or until the potatoes are tender.

  5. Let cool completely, cover with plastic wrap, and chill.

  6. When ready to serve, preheat the oven to 450°.

  7. Cut the potatoes into 4 even sections.

  8. Using a metal spatula, transfer the squares to a rimmed baking sheet.

  9. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the tops are browned.


  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan and sauté the mushrooms over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes or until lightly golden.

  2. Add the flour, season with salt and pepper, and stir well. Stir in the cream and keep warm.


  1. Melt the 1 tablespoon Caviar butter in a sauté pan or cast-iron skillet.

  2. Season the filets with salt and pepper.

  3. When the pan is hot, sear the filets over high heat for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare, about 4 minutes on each side for medium, or to the desired doneness.

  4. Remove the steaks from the pan and just before serving, stir the whiskey into the pan juices.

  5. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes or until the alcohol burns off.

In a separate sauté pan, melt the 4 tablespoons of Caviar butter and sauté the bread slices over medium-high heat, turning often so the bread becomes crispy and not soggy, about 3 or 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter, top with the filets, and arrange the mushrooms in the center. Spoon the whiskey sauce over the filets and serve with the potatoes.




  • 3/4 cup Dry White Wine 

  • 3 tablespoon Chopped Shallot 

  • 2 tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice 

  • 1/2 cup Chilled Unsalted Butter, cut into 8 pieces 

  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Saffron Butter, cut into 8 pieces 

  •  Salt and Pepper (to taste) 

  • 2 tablespoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil 

  • 2 Filets of Sea Bass (approximately 8 oz. each) 


Preheat your oven to 450F.

Start by chopping the fresh dill and shallots.

Boil wine, shallot and lemon juice in medium saucepan over high heat until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 6 minutes. Reduce heat to low & add Saffron Butter 1 piece at a time, whisking until melted before adding more.

Remove pan from heat and stir in fresh dill. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

In an oven proof saute (fry) pan, heat the olive oil until its so hot its about to smoke. 

Season the filets with salt and pepper and add to the hot pan.
For filets with skin: Start cooking filets skin side down for approximately 5 minutes until the skin is nice and crispy. 
Then, flip them over for 30 seconds, transfer them into a 450 oven and roast them for about 3-4 minutes.

For skinless filets: Cook them on one side for about 5 to 6 minutes and flip them over for another 2 minutes before transferring to the oven for 3 to 4 minutes.
On warm plates (Try pre-heating them in the microwave for about 2 minutes), top the pan roasted filet with the Lemon Dill Sauce. 
Sprinkle a little of the extra chopped dill on top and serve with wild rice, green beans, and a wonderful, dry Italian white wine.
