Watch out, there's Crumble about! in French Food and Wine Posted September 4, 2005 It's been around these 'ere parts for well over two years now SB. Although, it does seem to be getting more and more like the real thing as time goes by. Personally I hate the stuff, but it is my husband's favourite dessert and when he first saw a rhubarb crumble on the menu a couple of years ago he was delighted and ordered it. Needless to say, it bore little resemblance to what we know as rhubarb crumble. However, the last one he had, an apple one in Avranches, was pretty close to the real thing!
