Named after a prestigious English boarding school, this mash-up of strawberries, whipped cream, and meringue crumbles is served at an annual cricket match there. A splash of liqueur is a grown-up touch that cuts the sweetness.

This is the easiest thing in the world to make and it gets rave reviews. It's a fine combination of ingredients and it's pretty too. Win-win.
I made it and its great
This is a great quick version of Pavlova. You can spin it any one of many ways. I made it for a luncheon recently, using fresh raspberries, some pink meringues I'd baked a couple of days before, raspberry coulis (made with berry liqueur also the day before), and of course whipped cream. The meringue cookies give it a little more crunch than a Pavolva meringue, though the latter remains my favorite dessert.
Strawberries, cream, meringues-- really, how could this be bad? And it was great-- lovely contrasts of texture with soft cream and chewy/crunchy meringues, but all light and fluffy with juicy berries. I omitted the liqueur as I was sharing with my daughter. Yum-- and comes together lightning-fast!
