Rhubarb Eton Mess

Rhubarb Eton Mess is an alternative to the traditional Eton Mess, which replaces the traditional strawberries with delicious Spring Forced Rhubarb.


  • 4 sticks rhubarb
  • any white sugar
  • water
  • 4 meringue nests
  • 300mls double cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Chop 2 sticks rhubarb into 3cm pieces, then place into a small pan and cover with water and sugar (can’t be more specific here until Friday am)
  • Bring to the boil and then simmer for a couple of minutes until the rhubarb is cooked, but not falling apart.
  • Once cooked strain and cool.
  • Chop the rest of the rhubarb into ½ cm pieces and place into same pan you cooked the other rhubarb in, and just cover with the sugar syrup that’s left over from the poaching earlier.
  • Simmer this time until you have a puree, then cook and chill well along with the poached rhubarb pieces.
  • When ready to serve, whip the bream lightly with the vanilla extract. Do not over whip, want soft peaks with a nice shine.
  • Break up the meringue nests.
  • Layer in glasses or tumblers the meringue with cream, poached and rhubarb sauce until the glass is full.
  • Serve.
