    True Balsamic vinegar is an artisan product from Modena, in Emilia Romagna, Italy, and is made…

  • 1 quantity meringue mousse base (see 'Goes well with')
  • 1 tsp rosewater
  • 1 portion pâté à bombe (see 'Goes well with')
  • 142ml pot double cream


  1. Make the pâté à bombe according to the recipe instructions (see 'Goes well with'). Divide into 3 portions (you only need one portion for this recipe).

  2. Reserve 6 nice strawberries for decoration. Chop the rest into chunks of about 1-2cm and mix with the vinegar. Set aside for 20 mins. Spoon 1-2 tbsp into each of 6 glasses.

  3. Make the meringue according to the recipe instructions and mix in the rosewater with the pâté à bombe. Whisk the double cream until forming soft peaks, but do not over-whisk. Fold cream into the meringue mix followed by the remaining chopped strawberries.

  4. Pipe or spoon into glasses or a large serving bowl, decorate with the reserved strawberries and chill until required.

made this recently and it was absolutely lovely. i made it from the printed recepie, and a jeannie has pointed out theres some bits missing online. it should have 142ml of douuble cream whisked until soft peaks form, dont over whip. and the "1 portion" of meringue is 3 egg whites and 25g castor sugar. hope this helps.

It was only half way through that double cream was mentioned - without anything in the ingredients about quantity etc. which meant there was a fair degree of guesswork. Ours looked more yellow than the picture on site - but still tasted delicious. Lack of clear instructions and missing ingredients however gives this only a two star rating.
