Eton Mess

There aren’t many dishes that I think of as traditionally English but Eton Mess is definitely one of them. I mean when someone told me that the national dish here was Chicken Tikka Masala I bursted out laughing; that doesn’t even sound English. Surely Bangers and Mash, Fish and Chips, a roast dinner or even an English breakfast would be more suitable for such a title?

I made Ginger Ice Cream quite a while back without an ice cream maker and I can tell you that in this case machines do make it so much easier, even though they are not essential. I knew I wanted to make a tropical flavoured ice cream to take me back to the shores of Jamaica but I wasn’t sure if I should go rum and raisin or piña colada.
