What is a Pavlova?
This internationally famous dessert is claimed by Australians and New Zealanders as its country’s birthplace. The issue is not settled, and it may never be, but that is not the point. What is the point is that this dessert is a masterpiece of simplicity, beauty, and taste.
The contrast of a crispy meringue “crust” and its inner creaminess unite with the lusciousness of whipped cream and a combination of fruits in a swoon-inducing explosion of texture and flavor.
