3/ prepare the stuffing : put, in a salad bowl, the two chopped meats, the poultry/mushroom blend, Cognac (brandy), starch, egg, salt and black pepper and blend carefully with a wooden spatula (or with your clean hands) until the stuffing is homogeneous and compact. Cover with some cling film and keep in the fridge over night.
The morning of the day of the meal (assuming the meal will be for the dinner) :
1/ peel and cut into 4 pieces in their height the potatoes (like for making very big French fries), pour them in a pan, cover with cold water, add some salt and cook during 15-20 minutes after the boiling point (check it is cooked using a knife).
2/ while the potatoes are cooking, prepare the stuffed guinea fowls : put on the board, the four boneless legs and wings (skin on the board). Remove the small fillets of the wings and put them on the legs. Add salt and black pepper, one spoonful of the stuffing on each leg and wing, one piece of foie gras on top of each one and a second spoonful of stuffing on top.
3/ make a roll of each stuffed leg/wing.
4/ cut 4 pieces (8 in x 10 in) of parchment and pour 2 drops of oil on each of them at 4 inches of the edges of the papers. On each paper, put one stuffed leg/wing and wrap it as if you were preparing a gift. Tie each one with a piece of roasting string.
5/ when the potatoes are cooked, heat he milk. Drain the potatoes quickly and mash them thinly, then add the boiling milk, walnut or olive oil, a little nutmeg and adjust the seasoning. Add the truffle cut peels and the truffle juice.

Then, remove from the hob, pour 3 soup spoonfuls of water and keep them covered with the lid during 15 minutes.
