  • About

These ‘floating islands’ have been popular for hundreds of years, and make a spectacular, and only slightly fiddly dessert to prepare. Don’t stress too much over the meringues; if the traditional method seems daunting, then cook them in the oven instead at 110°C/gas ½ for 5-8 minutes. It’s just as good and will remove any anxiety at the cooker!
