My preferred local products in South Eastern Queensland to use in this recipe are:

  • Scenic Rim sweet corn cobs
  • Towri sheep milk pecorino

This recipe captures a taste of the Scenic Rim in South Eastern Queensland. Corn, eggs, sheep milk pecorino cheese and coriander all grow wonderfully well in this magnificent part of Queensland. The saltiness and texture of the crumble and the aroma of the coriander balance out the smoky sweetness and the richness of the corn and egg.

 If you do not reside in Queensland and are unable to source these ingredients, please feel free to substitute them for what's available at your local shops.


For a cheat's version of cooking the eggs: 

1. Place water into mixing bowl and cook 10 min/70°C/speed 1

2. Place eggs into simmering basket.  Insert simmering basket and cook 10 min/70°C/speed 1.

3. Remove eggs from basket and set aside to cool.

    Not bad, but a lot of effort!

    We made this for Valentine's Day. Each individual element (soup, crumble, oil, egg) was quite tasty, but putting them all together didn't quite deliver the flavour sensation I was expecting. As mentioned elsewhere, this recipe makes more crumb than soup...so we have a couple of days to use it elsewhere before it goes stale!

    Yet to put together but wanted to add some notes!

    Makes ALOT of crumb, will reduce by 1/2 or even 2/3 next time. 

    Didnt have gas stove top so used bbq.

    Rather than straining soup, try removing 1/2 and blend speed 10 for another minute and repeat 

    So far so good

    Oil looks amazing and makes alot, also used it in bread (with the left over sheeps cheese/corriandar) to serve with it tmrc_emoticons.)

    Congratulations on your presentation to Thermomix, Josh, and thank you for your inspirational session.  I look forward to trying your recipe and had Thermie eggs poached in shell for Sunday breakfast as stage 1 (more practice required).  I came home via Brisbane after Thermofest and went to GOMA on Saturday morning hoping to check out your restaurant but unfortunately the whole of GOMA was still closed when I visited.  Best wishes for your future.
