Eton Mess is a traditional English dessert using fruit (usually strawberries), mashed up meringue and vanilla cream, in it's simplest form anyway. It originated in the 19th century at Eton college and I have heard a few stories surrounding it’s name including a pavlova dropped on the floor then picked up and mixed with cream hence the name mess!
Meringues either home-made or shop bought. The amount depends on how you would like the consistency.
450g Fruit of your choice, always fresh and preferentially seasonal.
Coulis, Just a splash to add colour and a little flavour.
