  • 1kg (2.2 lbs) tenderloin (no strings attached!)
  • 1 foie gras mousse
  • 500 g puff pastry (if you are lucky enough to be in Calgary, simply pick it up frozen from Pascal’s)
  • 1 egg
  • 40g butter (3 Tbsp)
  • Salt & Pepper


  1. Pre-heat your gas or electric oven to 450 F (230C). Place the beef tenderloin in your roasting tray, dot with butter.
  2. Place the beef in the oven for about 10 minutes, until half-cooked.

  9. Serve with your favorite side dish, enjoy!
