The dessert is called a Pavlova

Or a “Pav”. It is a meringue-based dessert topped with whipped cream and fruit that is almost Australia’s national dish. Although New Zealanders would like to claim it was invented in their country first.

The dessert was created in honour of the Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova, when she toured Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s.

Although the dessert can be made and eaten anytime, nothing says summer in Australia more than a Pav. I made this one for Christmas last year.

It is for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!

  1. Great; now I’ve drooled on my keyboard. Thanks a bunch. (I’d have to make my own Pav w/ blueberries only–or maybe blues and strawberry– raspberries ick me out.)
