  2. Are those blueberries in your pudding? I like the “crowded” analogy of you in the shopping aisle and your meringues.

  3. Looks delicious. Yeah, I’m one who loves to shop too… as long as it’s for groceries. I can spend hours in a grocery store, although, it doesn’t usually take that long. I’m not much of a shopper other than that. For everything else I just dash in and out.

  8. Wow, such a long time since I made these, Tandy… thanks for the delicious reminder! We have some great village like shopping centres five minutes from The Blue House, so it’s quick and convenient to pop up there… but both Peter and I hate it when the stores are crowded… being retired, we try to pick the ‘sweet spot’ in the day when mothers aren’t there with screaming kids… though now it’s the holidays, there is no quiet time. Lovely recipe. Thanks.

  9. I need to be in the mood for shopping otherwise I would not do it, especially when it is crowded…I love this dessert, but never had tried to make at home…thanks for the tip of poaching the meringues one by one…
    Hope you are having a fantastic week Tandy…

  10. Oh, Floating Islands, haven’t made these forever – probably the last time was a practical exam at Uni and that’s probably why! Yours do look very pretty – Tandy.

  11. I was a Londoner, born and bred (as they say) so I too don’t mind the crowds too much. This post took me back over 25 years to one of my very first “proper” dinner parties in my early 20’s. I made duck with blackcurrant as a main course and floating islands as my dessert….not sure I’ve made either of them again since, perhaps I need to!

  14. The first time I had this in Paris, I thought I died and went to heaven. I’ve made it a few times and every time I feel incredibly lucky to be alive. 🙂

  16. Oh boy this looks good! I also hate the crowds and oh my goodness living in HK has been a challenge living with 8 million of your closest friends. I think after 6 years it is starting to not bother me as much. You kind of get used to it.

  17. Oh not big on shopping, but dont mind the crowds. Weird I guess. Gah, some people really are very rude, sorry your shopping experience was interrupted by that. Great recipe, love the name of it.
