Bridge Cottage Bistro - Our famous meringues (& a bit of history)

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.
