Fontina Fonduta

1. In a medium bowl, soak cheese in milk, 2 hours, or until cheese has softened. Drain cheese, reserving milk

2. In a double boiler, whisk egg yolks and reserved milk together over medium heat, 2-4 minutes. Add fontina and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cheese has completely melted.

3. Season with truffle oil and salt and cook for another 5 minutes. Do not allow the mixture to boil or it will separate. Meanwhile, rub the inside of a fondue pot with the clove of garlic. Transfer cheese mixture to the fondue bowl, and serve with potatoes, steak, vegetables, bread and salsa verde.

Crispy Potatoes

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook 7-10 minutes, or until tender. Drain, careful not to break up any pieces, and lay on a sheet pan to cool.

2. In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add potatoes, in batches, and cook until golden brown on all sides, 5-6 minutes

3. Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with salt. Repeat with remaining potatoes.

Steaks, Asparagus and Mushroom

1. Pat steaks dry and season with salt and pepper.

2. In a large bowl, toss asparagus and mushrooms with olive oil, salt and pepper.

3. Set grill to medium high heat. Cook steak, until desired doneness, 6-8 minutes per side for medium. Let rest 5 minutes and cut into 1 inch cubes. While steak is resting, grill asparagus and mushrooms 5-7 minutes, or until cooked and slightly softened.

Salsa Verde

1. In a medium bowl, mix parsley, anchovies, capers, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, and Tabasco sauce. Add olive oil and stir to combine.

Toasted Bread

1. Slice bread into ½ inch slices. Toast on grill, 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden and crispy.
