My first "Featured Dish" in over a year!

Rumbled eggs with pancetta & truffle pecorino on griddled Dr. Marty’s crumpets, $17.00, Stables of Como

Rumbled eggs with pancetta & truffle pecorino on griddled Dr. Marty's crumpets

This brunch dish from Stables of Como is one of the best things I've eaten all year. These pictures are from a brunch we had quite a few months ago, and the menu does seem to change quite regularly, but luckily the rumbled eggs have stayed.

Grilled crumpets are topped with creamy creamy eggs and a generous sprinkling of truffled pecorino - the truffle flavour is present, but not overpowering. Crisp batons of pancetta and chives complete the dish. It is generous and indulgent, but also well balanced. So delicious!!

EDIT: After reading Lorraine's comment below, I just had to Google - apparently "rumbled eggs" is a 19th century term for scrambled eggs, and are made by cooking beaten eggs, cream or milk, butter and a little water, either in a saucepan or in a double boiler.

  1. Ooh that looks great! What does rumbled mean though? Is it different from scrambled? Because if it's a new technique I'd love to know it! :D

  2. Lorraine - Just googled it - it's a thing! http://www.food.com/recipe/rumbled-eggs-22787
    I've also seen scrambled eggs at Stables of Como and they look different, golden folds of egg as opposed to the creamy pile of eggs here. :)
