Random Recipe 8 - Part 2 - Turkish Delight And Pistachio Meringue.

Okay, how wonderful is my husband?  For the Random Recipe Challenge this month he had to choose a recipe from my pile of cut out recipes.  Poor man got a recipe from Woman and Home magazine.  It was a big, girly meringue and it contained Turkish Delight which he just doesn't like.  But, you know what?  He knows I adore Turkish delight and meringue and pistachios so he went ahead and made it for me!



I don't think he has ever made meringue before.  The only problem was that it stuck to the parchment paper and ended up breaking as he tried to remove it so it didn't look as stunning as he had been hoping for.  However, it tasted like food of the gods!  Oh yum yum yum.  It had rose water in the meringue and the cream as well as chopped Turkish Delight all through it and sprinkled liberally with pistachio.  I was in heaven.  Huge brownie points to Stevie-boy!



Recipe can be found on the Woman and Home website here.

  4. Wow, well done to Steve for attempting such an impressive recipe when he didn't even want to eat the end product! It looks fantastic, even if it did fall apart a little - cream hides everything!

    Glad you enjoyed it, and how enjoyably sneaky that all the cuttings were yours and you were forced to pick things you'd like :-)

  7. And blush he should - but he's a star - making you something that you love to eat, and yet he doesn't. I'm not such a fan of the Turkish delight we get here, but those I've tried in Turkey and Cyprus, flavours are so much lighter - Maybe steve would prefer those too.
