Preheat oven to 220 °C.

Place baking paper on a baking trays and by using the bottom of a 22cm round cake tin or a 34cm x 11cm rectangular flan dish, draw the outline of the base on the paper.
Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar and salt until stiff peaks form.
While the beater is still running add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until all the sugar has been mixed in and the meringue is thick and glossy.
Sift the corn starch over the mixture, add the vinegar and mix well until combined.
Scoop the mixture onto the drawn lines and shape the meringue within the drawn lines, making the edges higher than the middle of the meringue.
Place in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 150 °C and bake for 30 minutes. Reduce the heat to 120 °C and bake for another 45 minutes.
Switch the oven off and let the meringues cool inside the oven.
Once cool, turn the meringue over and carefully remove the baking paper and place in a serving dish.
