Blackberries,cream and sticky home made meringues….

…. are evocative of the clink of bone china, the murmur of quiet conversation and the smell of fresh mown grass on a hot Sunday afternoon, in late summer, in the home counties or in any good period costume drama. The culinary experience of eating this dessert yesterday, in the garden at La Moussiere, shared few of these characteristics save for the shade, the heat and the season. Luckily meringues, blackberries and cream pay scant attention to the script and, as long as they are well treated, remain agreeably voluptuous in any given situation.
