Peel and wash the potatoes and cut into pieces.  Boil for 20 minutes in salted water.

Sear 2 slices of smoked bacon in a pan with a little olive oil.  Add the stock and boil for 10 mins.  Filter the stock and replace in the pan with 20 g butter.  Bring back to the boil, whisking to thicken the sauce.  Keep warm.
Drain and mash the potatoes.  Add the warm milk, the remaining butter piece by piece, the cream salt and pepper.  Stir, then break up the chestnuts and add to the mix.  Fry the salmon noisettes in the remaining olive oil for 2 minutes each side.
