The Food Exchange – Eton Mess {or: what a mess!}


This months topic for Lucy’s and my project was summer fruits. If you missed our first post about the project you can have a look here to find out more and read about last months challenge…the main idea is that every month Lucy (who is English and lives in Germany) gives me a new English recipe about a certain topic and I (A German, living in England) give her a German recipe. Each of us bake the recipe and post the result on our blogs – so easy and so much fun!
I love baking but sometimes I just need a bit of inspiration, so I am always very excited to find out about my challenge.


Well, Eton Mess…a typical English recipe, and yes according to Wikipedia the name really comes from it being traditionally served at Eton. According to Wikipedia, the name of the famous dish comes from it’s slightly messy appearance. I should have clearly read this article before I made the dish as it really makes me feel better. Why? Well, because my result looks…messy – to put it mildly…and definitely not like on the picture that came with Lucy’s recipe by Jamie Oliver {click}.
But I think we should leave my lack of presentation-skills aside and talk about the recipe: It is great, I have to say – super easy to prepare, really well explained. And the most important part: my Eton Mess tasted way better than it looked.

Thank you for recommending this recipe to me, Lucy! It won’t be the last time I use it. As always I really enjoyed our challenge and now I am very excited to have a look at your post on as soon as it ha been posted. 🙂       Foodchallenge_eton_mess4Foodchallenge_eton_mess12
