  • 65g sugar
  • 65g sugar
  • 65g sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp corn flour
  • 2 tlbs peach powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp white vinegar

Fresh Fruit

  • 16 large ripe strawberries
  • 1 chip (punnet) blueberries
  • 1 chip (punnet) raspberries
  • 1 chip (punnet) black berries
  • 1 kiwifruit

Tamarillo whipped cream

  • 1 cup cream whipped
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 2tbsp tamarillo powder (optional)
  • mint leaves to garnish

Fruit Gels

  • 250ml mango puree
  • 250ml sugar syrup
  • 5g agar agar
  • 250ml passionfruit juice
  • 250ml sugar syrup
  • 5g agar agar
  • 250ml acai puree
  • 250ml sugar syrup
  • 5g agar agar



Place the egg whites into a mixer and turn on to high, add the first 65g of sugar slowly and whisk until soft peak. Then add the next 65g sugar and whisk for exactly 5 minutes then add the final 65g sugar, corn flour, peach powder & vinegar and whisk for 10 seconds.

Place mixture into a piping bag and pipe out 8 circles of mixture 8cm in diameter and 4 cm high on to baking paper then place onto a tray and cook in a preheated oven at 120°C for 60 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Fruit gels

Note: this method is the same for all of the fruit gels, only the flavour changes.

Place the sugar syrup and agar agar into a saucepan and whisk well, bring to the boil and simmer for exactly 2 minutes (this is needed to activate the agar agar). Remove from the heat and add the fruit juice or puree, mix well and then pour into a container and chill. Once set cut into cubes and place into the food processor attachment and pulse until it is a smooth gel. Pour into plastic piping bags and chill until needed.


In the mixing bowl add the cream, icing sugar and tamarillo powder. Turn to high and mix until soft peak. Refrigerate until needed.


Place dots of the different gels around the plate in any desired pattern (note it looks better if the pattern is not uniform and the sizes vary), place the meringue torn in the middle of the plate and add quenelles of cream, fresh berries and torn mint leaves. Serve.
