Meringue Rocky Road With Middle Eastern Flavours

There are always plenty of egg whites in my house and they usually end up being used to make meringues. Last week I decided to make meringue rocky road. This was devoured over the course of the weekend and will be made again without a doubt.

For quite some time, our airline of choice has been Air France. A few years ago we were headed on a barge trip and the pilots decided to go on strike. Our outgoing flight was moved to British Airways. But Heathrow would not allow us emergency transit entrance. The United Kingdom charges for a transit visa and with the High Commission closed we could not take this route. We left a day later on KLM, their sister airline. This flight was direct from Cape Town to Amsterdam and then on to Paris. This in no way impacted on our barge trip so all was good. Our return flight was via Munich on Lufthansa. Other than the fact we spent a lot of the day in an airport it was not too bad. We were compensated for the inconvenience making our next two trips really cheap.

For our upcoming flight the inbound plane we originally booked on was changed. And then the outgoing plane was changed. First we were on a Boing and now it has changed to the A380. When looking for flights to Italy for next year I saw the notification our seats had been changed. I could not select seats on the App and when I went in on-line to choose new seats I saw that we would be refunded for our initial choice, and had to pay for our new seats. But I could not complete the transaction myself. Knowing how amazingly well Air France respond to tweets I sent a direct message. In the midst of handling flight disruptions my small issue of seat allocation was handled efficiently and quickly. Just about as quickly as this meringue rocky road came together.

  1. Well done on your swift attention to the seating situation. Well done as well on your excellent meringue rocky road. I love the addition of rose petals and pomegranate seeds. You’ve just reminded me I have 3 egg whites left from hollandaise sauce on Sunday night, thank you 8)


  2. This is just plain wicked Tandy-the perfect sugar hit. Glad all ended well with the flights!

  3. My husband once found this amazing flight connection between Amsterdam and Buenos Aires. But then it turned out that he has a change of planes in USA territory and he had to apply for a transit visa, which costs about 130 euro. Ups. So I get the pain. It’s nice to hear that you’re happy with Air France. I did my last travel with them and I agree. This meringue looks delicious and if it’s fast, there are two reasons to make it!


  4. Wow! not sure how I missed this meringue but it sure sounds amazing, I have never made anything close to this before, will have to make next time I have some extra egg whites.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will only be visible once I reply)
