Eton Mess is a traditional summertime British dessert. Crunchy meringue, whipped cream and fresh berries are all you need to whip up this tasty treat.
I developed this version as one of the recipes for my costing class back in February/March and when it came time for me to pick something to submit to The Oregonian for my June recipe, I decided to go with this.
Berry season in Oregon is one of my favourite times of the year. I love nothing better than going strawberry picking, eating berries, and creating different recipes with them. I went berry picking last weekend with a few of my friends and while my knee didn’t appreciate all the fun I had, it was a wonderful day full of sunshine, berries, and laughter — three of my favourite things 🙂
I have finals next week, but after that I promise I’ll be coming at ya with more recipes and stories and anything else I can think of to throw your way! I can tease you a little bit and tell you I’m catering a couple of events this summer and I’m SO EXCITED!! I’ll be a master of all things Greek!
But back to the recipe.
You can absolutely make this with pre-made meringues and whipped cream if you don’t want to make them yourself. I just get joy out of bashing down on my meringues when they’re done – get a little frustration out, you know?
Anyway, here’s the recipe. Brazil is about to go open the World Cup, so I have some football viewing to do. Enjoy!
