To make the cakes, wash the potatoes, place in salted cold water and bring to boil. Cook until tender but not soft, drain the potatoes and let cool down for 3 minutes.

Peel the potatoes when still hot, pass in a potato ricer and add the grated Poacher, salt, nutmeg and egg yolks only.

Shape to cake and pan roast in a non-stick pan with the warm oil for 2 minutes each side. To finish, heat through in a 170C hot oven for 5 minutes before serving.

Put the butter and shallot in a pan and cook on medium for 1 minute, add the peas and marjoram and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute and wet with the stock.

Pass the mixture in a blender and blend to fine puree.

Serve within 10 minutes.

Steam the asparagus for 3-4 minutes, place 500ml water with the vinegar in a shallow pan and gently heat. When ready to serve, poach the egg yolks for 1 minute and serve.
