Season the fillet of beef with cracked black pepper and salt crystals and sear fully in a very hot pan with grape seed oil and a little butter and cook in an oven at 170C until very rare 37C in the center. Pan sear the shitake Mushrooms with butter oil and tarragon and add into a bowl with the grated Stilton, the sliced leek, the egg and the cream, salt and pepper.
