Marie Stuart and the caisse from Wassy
The caisse | Ji-Elle / CC-BY-SA
Also known as caisse de Joinville ("Joinville’s box"), this French recipe is displayed on a small paper carton which looks like a box (caisse in French).
And in that box, we find... an light almond meringue, delicately flavoured with vanilla.
The little history
The tradition says queen Mary Stuart, who lived in castle of Wassy, created those little meringues.
