The term, Meringue, first appeared in a French cookbook in 1692. But there was an earlier recorded English book in 1604 by Lady Elinor Fettiplace, who gave a recipe that can be easily recognizable as a Swiss meringue, which she called “white biskit bread.”
So we think it's fair to say that the meringue can definitely claim to be English :)
Here's our latest batch, just out the oven. Ginger & pomegranate molasses.
