What is a Pavlova?
A pavlova is a meringue based dessert filled with sweetened whip cream and topped with berries or fruit. Pavlova’s are often associated with either Australia or New Zealand. They date back to the 1920s or 30s. They are thought to have been named in honor of a Russian ballerina from around the turn of the century – Anna Pavlova.
Berry Pavlova is a Fun and Special Dessert
This recipe makes a great addition to the menu for a 4th of July gathering or other summer celebrations. The meringues and whip cream filling create a background of white and the combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries combine into a red white and blue color scheme perfect for a festive holiday. This dessert is a fun and special way to celebrate Independence Day.
Cooking Tip for Making Meringues
Make sure the temperature in your kitchen is cool if you are making meringues. If it is too hot, the meringues will be difficult to make and may end up sticky, instead of dry and light. Stop by the shop if you want to purchase the ramekins or other ingredients to make this recipe.
