Translated as "floating island", this dessert shows up on the menus of many Paris bistros. The standard version consists of a an "island" of fluffy eggwhites in a small pool of creamy custard. Sometimes caramel is added, or it is studded with other flavorings as in this version enjoyed at La Fontaine de Mars.
