This episode is a demonstration of the versatility of merengues. Chef Julia Child observes pastry chef Charlotte Akoto as she creates three different desserts: merengue sandwiches with chocolate cream center, chocolate merengues with a caramel cream filling, and a merengue Napoleon with whipped cream and fresh fruit . First, she demonstrates the techniques used to make several different kinds of merengues, forming the part of the dessert that will serve as the base for a variety of cream and fruit fillings. Then she shows Child how to make the fillings themselves, and does a final assembly of all the ingredients.
