Retreat Recipes

Starting with Deserts…

Last Night Delights

Eton Mess Cups  

By Natalie Green 
Makes 32 cups! (Shelley and Boann not included)

Ingredients

  1. Five bags frozen forest fruits, made into a compote with five tbps caster sugar (ie you just cook it gently from frozen, then strain off excess juice, you want it to be like a soft juicy jam in consistency)
  2. Three packs of meringue nests, broken up (we had my handmade meringue, though!)
  3. Three litres whipping cream

To Decorate

Fresh strawberries, meringue grissini and chocolate lacework (sorry that’s the poncy pastry chef bit, you could just chuck on a strawberry and a flake!).

To Create

Whip the cream to soft peaks and load into a piping bag fitted with a plain nozzle (I forgot my piping bags on the day and believe it or not used a washed out frozen fruit bag with the corner snipped out!)

Starting with fruit, then the meringue, then cream, layer up twice (six layers), decorate and ask Shelley Moon to serve with lusciousness!
