Amond and Meringue Roulade

Pair with Cream

For Sherries served with puddings, we mainly recommend Creams and Pedro Ximénez which are all sweet, but totally different. As a general rule, it is considered appropriate for the Sherry drunk at the end of a meal to be sweeter than the pudding with which it is paired.

Ingredients

egg whites
250g 
sugar
1 teaspoon 
cornflour
1 teaspoon 
vinegar
100g 
flaked almonds, toasted
1 tablespoon 
icing sugar
200ml 
cream

Directions

Serves 8.

Pre-heat oven to 170 ºC.

Wisk the egg whites until stiff, add 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking well after each addition until the meringue is thick and glossy. Stir in the cornflower, the vinegar and fold in the almonds. Spread the meringue on to a tin lined with parchment paper 31 x 21 cm. Bake for 20 minutes.

Lay a sheet of parchment paper and dust with icing sugar. When the meringue has cooled slightly in the tin, tip on the parchment and peel off the lining paper. Leave to cool. Whip the cream until stiff and spread over the meringue, carefully roll up the meringue like a Swiss roll, using the parchment paper to help you. Sieve more icing sugar on the top and serve.

serving and consuming

Pairing Cream with food

The ideal temperature at which to serve a Cream is 12ºC. It may also be consumed as an aperitif, or as a cocktail served with ice and a slice of orange.

It is the ideal dessert wine; perfect to accompany fruit (melon, orange) pastries or ice-cream. It can also be paired very well with foie gras and blue cheeses.

Cream fast facts

Always chilled

Serve chilled, between 10 & 12º C.

Not only a dessert wine

Delicious with pastries and fruit, but also with the foie.

Style of Glass

Serve in a white wine glass, or wide rimmed glass with ice.
