The first ever A MAZE. Live Cooking Show!
For the A MAZE. / Berlin 2020 - Total Digital Festival we invited the community to share their favorite local dishes with us and the worldwide community. What connects more than gaming and cooking? Cooking is so far the best practice to know different cultures, tastes, traditions and the people.

At the moment it isn't the right time to travel and experience different cultures in person so we are hosting our first ever A MAZE. Live Cooking Shows to bring the world to your homes with delicious recipes and wonderful chefs! We are sharing the ingredients and recipe so you can cook along!

Share your cookalong thoughts & media via twitter (#AMaze2020, #AMAZELiveCooking) or on our discord channel.

Mini-Pavlovas for Edible Games with Jenn Sandercock

This recipe will give you supplies to play either High Tea Assassin (3 player game) or Flavour Roulette (1-5 player game).

For Meringues
  • For a small batch:
    • 1 egg white
    • 60 g sugar
  • Double for more
For Fillings
  • For High Tea Assassin
    • ⅓ cup any red jam, e.g. raspberry, strawberry
    • ½ cup chocolate, melted
  • For Flavour Roulette
    • 2 tablespoons of a flavour you dislike on sweet desserts, e.g. horseradish, mustard, Vegemite, curry powder.
For Toppings
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup of at least 3 different chopped fruits (either fresh, tinned, or thawed from frozen). For example, kiwi fruit, bananas, peaches, passionfruit, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, etc..

Special equipment needed:
  • Baking trays
  • Electric mixer or stand mixer
  • Piping bag will make your life easier but is not essential

  • Prepare oven and trays:
    • Preheat oven to 140°C/280°F.
    • Line baking trays with sheets of parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Make the meringue mix
    • Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form.
    • Add sugar one tablespoon at a time while mixing each tablespoon in fully.
  • Create meringue shapes
    • Leave a small amount of space between each meringue.
    • If you have a piping bag:
      • Scrape out your bowl and put the meringue mix into a piping bag.
      • Pipe into a “nest” shape onto your baking trays.
    • If you don’t have a piping bag:
      • Use a spoon to make dollops on the tray.
      • Use the back of the spoon to make a crater in your dollop.
  • Bake the meringues
    • Bake for 30-45 minutes or until dry and firm to touch.
  • Allow meringues to cool
    • Switch off the oven.
    • Leave in the oven for 10 minutes.
    • Remove from oven and put on cake cooling rack.
  • Add fillings
    • Place fillings inside nests according to the rules of the game you’d like to play.
    • For High Tea Assassin
      • Make 2 of the same flavour for each player. That is, make 2 with jam, 2 with melted chocolate, and leave 2 plain
    • For Flavour Roulette
      • Fill one with the “bad” filling.
      • Make at least one with nothing inside and up to the number of players -1.
  • Whip the cream
    • Put cream into a large bowl.
    • Whip until stiff peaks form.
  • Add cream as the topping
    • Using a piping bag or a spoon, put on cream on top of the meringue nests in a dome.
    • Place your nests carefully so you can remember which are matched based on fillings.
  • Decorate with your toppings
    • Chop up your toppings so they’re small enough to fit on top of your domes.
    • For High Tea Assassin:
      • If you would like to play yourself, make sure at this point you move your pairs around so you forget what is inside.
      • Put the same toppings on any two that have the same filling.
    • For Flavour Roulette:
      • Put the same topping on every item for the round.
      • Make sure that for every round you have at least one item with the “bad” filling.
