Boisdale Of Bishopsgate Launches the £90 Omelette

Bois­dale of Bish­ops­gate has launched the most expen­sive omelette in the world made from gull’s eggs, lob­ster and truffles.

Robert Kavara, Bois­dale of Bishopsgate’s head chef will be using Welsh coast native lob­ster, West Minch cock crab, wild gar­lic, Wye Val­ley new sea­son aspara­gus & Pied­mont sum­mer truf­fles in the omelette, priced at £90 (48-hour notice is required). 

A num­ber of oth­er gull’s egg dish­es, indi­vid­u­al­ly priced, include Cod­dled eggs served with spring morels and Wye Val­ley aspara­gus whilst those who pre­fer their eggs scram­bled will be treat­ed to Smoked wild Dunkeld salmon & sum­mer truf­fle shav­ings.

The gull’s eggs dish­es will be on the menu from Mon­day 13th May but, owing to the very short gull’s egg sea­son, they will only be avail­able for a few weeks. Gulls eggs, with their green mot­tled shells and bright yel­low yolks, are well known for their rich flavour. 

Robert Kavara said, Gull’s eggs are an age-old del­i­ca­cy that for 3 – 4 weeks each year become one of the most sought-after British eggs by chefs around the UK (some­times fetch­ing as much as £8 per egg) so I am delight­ed our cus­tomers will have the chance to sam­ple this rare culi­nary expe­ri­ence of gull’s eggs as it is a tru­ly indul­gent dish.

Only one egg is har­vest­ed per nest and each egger’ (col­lec­tor) must have a DEFRA license, which is renewed yearly.”
