There’s no question that the meringue-based fruit- and cream-topped dessert called Pavlova originated Down Under, but Aussies and Kiwis will forever debate who came up with it first. They all agree, however, that the name was attached in the 1930s to honor the beloved Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova. And we think it would be hard to find a soul Down Under who doesn’t think the dessert is fun to make and super-delicious to eat.
If you have never made a Pavlova before, the upcoming holidays are a good time to try. Meringue is not especially tricky to make, but it’s even easier with a new Pavlova kit from Market Hall Foods. The kit includes the chewy-crisp meringue shell plus lemon curd, Chantilly cream, and passion fruit purée for toppings along with the traditional spring berries and kiwi fruit used to decorate the top.
The Market Hall Foods DIY kits are available Thursday, April 1 through Saturday, April 3 (and pre-made Pavlovas can be picked up before Passover). Click here to learn more.
