A Delicious Eton Mess Recipe

Comments

What’s this you ask? Well, this is a pile of absolute deliciousness, called Eton Mess! It’s a traditional English dessert which essentially is a pile of the most amazing whipped cream with homemade crushed meringue cookies and fresh berries! I first tried this Eton Mess recipe at The Soho House in West Hollywood and fell in love with the messy dessert! The presentation is unique and unlike any other dessert. It’s served in a giant pile on a platter for everyone to scoop from. It’s a fun, light dessert that fits perfectly for Halloween too!!etonmess_recipe_1etonmess_recipe_4etonmess_recipe_2etonmess_recipe_3etonmess_recipe_5
