The best combination ever An explosion of taste! The sweetness of sugar combined with some sour lemon. It’s all about getting the right balance although I haven’t tried one myself yet. It’s one of my favorite cakes. This particular cake was enjoyed by both me and my husband in Bordeaux.
A little background information from Wikipedia: ‘The notion that meringue was invented in the Swiss town of Meiringen and improved by an Italian chef named Gasparini in the 18th century is contested; the Oxford English Dictionary states that the French word is of unknown origin. It is sure nevertheless that the name meringue for this confection first appeared in print in François Massialot’s cookbook of 1692. The word meringue first appeared in English in 1706 in an English translation of Massialot’s book.’
Whether it is Swiss, French or Italian – It’s tasty!
