I set a little puzzle the other day, all about puddings and desserts. I love making them, but I always prefer cheese to something sweet at the end of a meal. At the family Christmas party the other day I made a dessert based on Eton mess, whipped double cream, meringues, and I added blueberries and raspberries instead of the usual strawberries – I also added vanilla to the cream which just lifted it a little… so maybe it should have been Ely mess, instead of Eton mess!
