    I had the Eton Mess from the Opus at Cornwall Street stand yesterday, delicious! I don’t know whether you saw them, they were little balls of pink meringue filled with strawberries. My friend remarked that women turn back into little girls when there’s a pudding involved, as I pulled the top half of the pink meringue off to reveal the strawberries inside, going “ooohhh! Wow!” It was just so magical, and of course really yummy!
