Author Notes

Eton Mess is combination of fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and meringue cookies. I have used raspberry compote. This is a simple dessert which needs only assembling 3 ingredients made in advance. The cream can be whipped and stored to be used when serving. Meringues can be store bought or made at home. —Sri Devi
