Truffle with Tempeh, Celery Root and Olive Oil (Video)

This dish is a signature at Sans, a new vegan restaurant in Brooklyn.

We recently visited Sans, a new vegan restaurant in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn, to talk about how chef Champ Jones's dish of truffle with tempeh, celery root and olive oil comes together. In the short time that the restaurant has been open, this menu item has become a signature dish of the kitchen.

The dish features housemade tempeh, truffle purée (made of leftover scraps, shallots and mushroom stock), fresh shaved truffles, toasted soy purée, celery root-sherry sauce and some good quality olive oil. Watch below to get a glimpse of the inspiration for this dish and a discussion of how it comes together.
