1. Preheat the oven to 350? and line a baking tray with baking parchment.
2. Beat the egg whites until satiny peaks form, and then beat in the sugar a spoonful at a time until the meringue is stiff and shiny. Sprinkle over the cocoa and vinegar, and the chopped chocolate. Then gently fold everything until the cocoa is thoroughly mixed in. Mound on to a baking sheet in a fat circle approximately 9 inches in diameter, smoothing the sides and top. Or prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and create 6 mounds of meringue on each sheet appoximately 2 inches in diameter. Place in the oven, then immediately turn the temperature down to 300? and cook for about one to one and a quarter hours for a single meringue or 20 mintues for indivdual meringues (rotate the baking sheets half way through the cook time). When it?s ready it should look crisp around the edges and on the sides and be dry on top, but when you prod the centre you should feel the promise of squidginess beneath your fingers. Turn off the oven and open the door slightly, and let the chocolate meringue disc cool completely.
3. When you?re ready to serve, invert on to a big, flat-bottomed plate. Whisk the cream till thick but still soft and pile it on top of the meringue, then scatter over fresh fruit.
