Benders mess with kiwi fruit



  • 120gm Egg whites
  • 120gm Caster sugar

Kiwi fruit puree / paper

  • 500gm fresh kiwi fruit
  • 50gm caster sugar
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed

Kiwi fruit salad

  • 2 kiwi fruit peeled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon of finely sliced mint
  • 2-3 tablespoons of kiwi fruit puree

Mascarpone cream

  • 3 tablespoons of Mascarpone
  • 3 table spoons of Crème friache
  • 1 tablespoon of Icing sugar
  • Juice and zest of one Lime
  • Seeded Vanilla pod


Firstly make the meringues by whisking half the sugar and the egg whites until soft peak is reached then gradually add the remaining caster sugar and continue to whisk until a shiny stiff peak is reached. Then spoon a good dollop onto baking paper and place in a pre heated oven at 120 and cook until dry and uncoloured.

To make the paper simple puree the fruit with the sugar and lemon juice. Then with a palate knife spread an even layer on to some Teflon sheet and dry in an oven at 100 degrees for about two-three hours. Reserve some puree for the fruit salad.

For the mascarpone cream, combine the mascarpone and the crème friache with the icing sugar, lime zests and juice. Along with the vanilla pod. Then take your meringues and break enough into the cream to make a rough creamy mess that will hold its form. Fold into this a little fruit puree and spoon into ring moulds.

Arrange the fruit salad on top of the meringue and cream mix. Then take some fruit paper and break into shards and garnish the mess

Dress the plate with some fruit puree and a small sprig of mint.
