A mid-summers night dream.  In-season berries and mango teamed with cream and meringue…sign me up!


  • 1 small pavlova or equivalent in meringues (approx. 200g in total)
  • 160ml double cream
  • 1 mango 
  • 1/2 c lemon and passionfruit curd   or store-bought version
  • 1 punnet raspberries
  • 2 tbsp slivered pistachios
  • salade de fleurs dried flowers



  1. Break up the pavlova and distribute evenly between the glasses
  2. Spoon lemon and passionfruit curd around any empty bits. 
  3. De-stone and peel the mango. slice into thin strips and add to the curd and meringue.
  4. Dollop (or pipe with a piping bag and star nozzle) the double cream into any crevices.
  5. Top with fresh raspberries
  6. Sprinkle with pistachios and dried flowers.


In this recipe, I used cocktail glasses to serve the Eton Mess into individual portions. You could also serve on a platter, grazing board or simply in a bowl.
