Chocolate Swirl Meringues served with Cream & Fruit of the Forest

Is there anything better than a fluffy meringue than whipped cream and sour berries? Maybe if you add in a swirl of chocolate! This quintessential dessert will never grow old in our opinion. 

We are passionate about cooking and baking. That’s why we decided to start Open Table Cooking School. To share with guests of the catering company the many recipes and techniques for delicious food like this one. 

A debut Baking only cooking class is coming to the school next month. This one will be aptly called ‘Just Desserts’. We’re cutting out the savoury for this one and focusing on A 5-hour, hands-on workshop where Ronit will teach a variety of sweet recipes.

This Chocolate Swirl Meringue recipe is just a taste of what’s to come on Sunday 10 March at Open Table Cooking School. Enjoy!
