In Other News – 5 April 2016

I don’t even like the stuff, if we’re being honest. I’m not a big fan of meringue; that slow baked blend of whipped egg whites and sugar. That said, when it’s done right – with a crisp outer layer, and a chewy, almost marshmallow centre – topped with tart fruit to cut through the sugar and the richness of the whipped cream, it can be quite incredible.

Yes, we’re talking Pavlova – for a few reasons. I saw it flash up in my Twitter feed a bit today (Hi Allan and Umar!). That and I also wanted something containing peaches, in the hopes that we may actually see an impeachment today.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
