Egg Salad
Hard boil the eggs, cool then peel. Chop the eggs into equal size pieces and then pulse in a food processor. Add mayonnaise, sherry vinegar and truffle oil. Do not purée because the eggs must hold some body. Season to taste with salt and pepper.&nbsp



Avocado Puree
Cut the avocado in half. Clean and skin with a spoon and remove the pit. In a food processor purée the avocado with the lime juice and season to taste. Pass the avocado through a medium mesh drum or sieve to remove any large particles.
&nbsp
Tomato Puree
Blanch the tomatoes to loosen the skin and shock in ice water (tomato concasse). Peel the skins and remove the seeds. Cut tomatoes into quarters. In a sauté pan heat the olive oil over high heat. Add the tomatoes and season lightly with salt lower to medium heat when they begin to sweat out the juice. Add the ginger and turn. Cook the tomato slowly to dry out the liquid and reduce the acidity. Continue to turn until almost dry. Remove the ginger and fold in the clean rough chopped thyme. In a food processor add mixture and pulse until smooth.
&nbsp
To Serve:
2 oz. osetra caviar (or your choice) thin chives and 4 slices of bread.
