Eton Mess is another British Classic and with the continued sportsfest of Wimbledon and the World Cup – it seems appropriate.

Eton Mess is the easiest recipe you can put together for a dinner party – fact. Some thick double cream, chopped strawberries and mashed up meringues all mixed together. Hey presto – it is made! One you can let the children totally prepare themselves and they will love it.

There are a couple of alternatives, if you prefer a lower fat version use Greek yoghurt instead of the double cream or you can have a more adult version by soaking the fruit in a 75ml of cointreau/kirsch/port for 2-3 hours in the fridge first

Enjoy……we will be glued to the TV tonight….we believe!

Thanks Good To Know for the recipe.
