A dessert that has been on my mind from the day I saw it. I fell in love with the elegance and beauty of this dessert. Valentine's round the corner, I thought of giving this mesmerizing dessert a try. Pavlova is a Meringue based dessert named after the beautiful Russian Ballet Dancer Anna Pavlova. This dessert is believed to have originated during one of her tours to Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s. Beating of eggs till stiff peaks, baking it to perfection and then topping it up elegantly was a big challenge for me. But after doing it I realised its one of the easiest one to prepare. A crisp dessert on the outside with gooey center inside, it is one of the most beautiful looking desserts I have ever seen. Loads of whipping cream and use of fresh fruits makes this awesome dessert more appealing to me. My treat to my kids and my hubby this Valentines. Thanks to the beautiful Chef Nigella Lawson for this wonderful recipe.
