  • 1 small black truffle about 15 g/ 0.5 oz
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 heaped tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley (or chives)
  • fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Grate about half of the truffle on the larger side of a box grater.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs and cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the grated truffle, set it aside for about 15 minutes.
  • Finely chop the herbs. Reserve a little for garnishing and add the rest to the eggs.
  • Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat. Add butter and let melt. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Slowly pour the eggs into the pan. Heat very slowly, leave untouched for about 15-20 seconds or until very slightly set on the bottom.
  • Move the eggs across the pan using a spatula for cooking evenly into large egg folds. Move gently in the pan for about 1-2 minutes; it depends on the heat.
  • The eggs should be mostly set yet still slightly moist and not dry. They will continue setting slightly in the pan and on the plate. Aim for them to look like in the pictures, large set fluffs that are still shiny with moisture, but no pools of uncooked eggs.
  • Serve: Transfer to slightly warm serving plates, shave the remaining black truffle on top. Sprinkle with a little freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
