Cut the butter into small dices. Now heat the truffle juice over a low heat, slowly adding the butter bit by bit, whisking all the while until the butter has been fully incorporated. Then stir in the truffle puree.
Continue to heat but never allow the mixture to boil/ Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
In a large pot, bring water to the boil and cook the eggs for exactly 4 minutes.
