1 vanilla pod
Broken meringues [shop-bought positively encouraged] Basil
Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod and add to the cream [the pod can be reserved for other desserts]. Whip the cream to soft peaks before sweetening to taste with a floral honey, before crumbling in the meringues, finely-sliced basil and mango. Meanwhile, slice the feijoa thinly.
Add a dome of eton mess to a plate, then armour with rounds of feijoa, dotting edible flowers in between.
If you’re lucky enough to have some Laphroaig 21-year-old, serve a dram with the dessert – or use any smoky whiskey with tropical notes.
