Meringue Girl Pipes Bite-Size Treats for London’s Feast

Growing up in Auckland, co-founder of London’s Meringue Girls Stacey O’Gorman, says from a young age she has always had a passion for food. O’Gorman met Meringue Girls co-founder Alex Hoffler while working together at London’s Hackney Picturehouse restaurant. They came up with the idea of flavoured gourmet meringues when applying to be on television show Cooks To Market in 2011.

The pair will be at London’s food festival Feast on Tobacco Dock, which runs from 31 July until 3 August.

The Londonist describes the sweets as “exquisitely decorated and boldly flavoured … crisp on the outside but gooey in the middle … in an array of flavours including dark chocolate, passion fruit, coconut, gin & tonic, and lemongrass & ginger.”

Meringue Girls’ meringues have been declared “naughty, but very nice” by Jamie Oliver and as “bite-sized heaven” in Marie Claire. The recipes are available in Meringue Girls Cookbook, published in 2013.
