Super easy to make, Eton Mess is an all-time classic British dessert. The dish was traditionally served at Eton College but how it came to have the name is not clear. One story is a Labrador dog sat on a picnic basket in the back of a car and squashed a strawberry and meringue dessert. The dessert is quick and easy to make and makes great use of ripe strawberries at the height of summer when they are plentiful. Frozen or canned strawberries don't work. This recipe is from Elaine Lemm, a well known food and drink writer in the UK. Enjoy!
