When A Mess Is A Good Thing
As the story goes, during a game of cricket between Eton College and Harrow School in the late 1890’s the centerpiece dessert – a gorgeous pavlova – was dropped . Rather than letting it go to waste, the crushed pavlova shell and remaining strawberries and cream were mixed together and the simple and refreshing Eton Mess was born. (Apologies to those in Harrow, who apparently refer to it as the Harrow Mess to this day.)
While we’re certainly happy to prepare a pavlova as a special order, you can make your own Eton mess with whipped cream, fresh summer berries and our meringues in a snap! It is an impressive and easy no-bake dessert perfect to serve during spring and summer months.
Step 1: Prepare the berries
Add additional berries depending upon your taste and what’s in season. We love adding blackberries
