You have to love a strawberry-meringue-whipped cream dessert that totally embraces its terrible appearance. Like it's saying, "why bother dressing up when it's all about the taste?" And boy oh Old-boy, is Eton Mess delicious! Strawberries, strawberry purée, broken-up meringue cookies and whipped cream jumbled together in one tasty car crash. Yum.
It almost seems like the rigamarole to get into Eton College would be worth it, just to have delicious strawberry dessert in the refectory!
