Casino ile flottante - Floating island

A floating island is a French dessert consisting of meringue floating on crème anglaise (a vanilla custard). The meringues are prepared from whipped egg whites, sugar and vanilla extract then quickly poached. The crème anglaise is prepared with the egg yolks, vanilla, and hot milk, briefly cooked.

Casino had this dessert and it was ready to eat as well!
This is the first time I have seen moist egg whites as a packaged dessert.

Basically it was egg white on top of vanilla cream, there was a sachet of syrup/caramel sauce but I did not need it because the dessert was sweet enough already.

The egg whites were nice and foamy and went well with the vanilla cream which was nice and runny.
