    i didn't realise that lemon juice worked to help the egg whites, I'd heard of cream of tartar (the acidic part of baking powder) and i've found baking powder to work as the tartar is hard to come by in small supermarkets. lemon juice is, however, much easier to come by

    When whipping egg whites, use a copper bowl or whisk. The copper ions help speed the process.

    I found out a AWSOME twist on this recipe: when you add the cheese, put a little white wine first and reduce to the right texture. It makes the flavour so more complex and rich!!! It is sooooo good.
