Making an Eton Mess of Pudding.
MARCO PIERRE WHITE: ETON MESS
Meringues, strawberries and raspberries and then add:
500ml double cream
400g icing sugar
½ vanilla pod
1 small tub of vanilla ice cream
400g of sugar for four people? You sure? I have checked, 400 grams is nearly a lb. Four ounces of sugar per person?
The kids were making this and no wonder it was disgustingly oversweet - I have a feeling that Marco cooked this using proper imperial measurements and someone has mistranslated into the bastard French system. If he had said sixteen ounces of sugar for four servings then the mental alarm bells would have gone off, using some arbitrary measurement based on the weight of Napoleons cock means tonight's pudding has been ruined. Bastards.
