Italian Meringue

Image of the Italian Meringue on Biancolievito
Italian Meringue is a basic preparation of pastry. It is particularly suited for adding air inside of compounds, such as mousses and semifreddo.
Likely traditional Meringue, the characteristic of Italian Meringue is to use boiled sugar syrup.
For the excellent success of this Meringue, I suggest you pay attention when adding the syrup inside the egg white. In fact, it must be added 2 times, pouring the syrup along the bowl surface.
