Raspberry Meringue Pie

Are you a Downton Abbey fan? My daughter got me interested in watching the PBS series about a year after it started and I was hooked. Did you know that there’s a Downton Abbey movie coming out this month, September 2019? I’m excited to see the movie–apparently they are expecting royal visitors. 

This recipe is from a fun cookbook, The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook. The new expanded edition is:

Perfect for fans of the show and just in time for the release of the movie, The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook gives you the opportunity to experience Mrs. Patmore’s cooking for yourself by dining like the Earl and Countess of Grantham or seeing what food was like for the maids and butlers in the servant’s quarters. With all the recipes, photographs, and dashes of historical insight, this cookbook is essential to any Downton fan’s collection.

I especially love the charming tidbits about times gone by, etiquette lessons, as well as suggested pairings sprinkled throughout the book.  If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll love the cookbook and this luscious recipe.
