Pavlova is a traditional kiwi/Aussie desert that we have downunder on Christmas day, and this one has just come-out of the oven. It has been baked by Mrs Divepac for tomorrow, which is Christmas day down here. It will be served with strawberries along with lashings of whipped-cream, and will be guarded by Mrs Divepac all night.

A couple of things, but when it comes down to eating:

The traditional Christmas Fondue served by my mother on 26th.
4 different kinds of meat, a dozen different sauces, vegetables to hold up the impression it includes something healthy, French baguette.
Usually takes +2 hours of continous eating to be finished by the whole family.

Afterwards the same family traditionally rolls back into the living room (walking is impossible) and attempts to smile when
asked if they like coffee with their strawberry cream (while trying to ignore their own serious doubts about their ability to handle
any additional calories).




Merry Christmas, DivePac88!

Are you using "broken up bits of dark chocolate" because it is well known that eatingbroken cookies/biscuits is non fattening because they have no calories?

Close but not quite there Castor.

The official line is that the Pavlova dessert was born in honour of the mid 1930s trip downunder by the Ballet Russes which had a Russian ballerina called Pavlova. There is however a contrary theory which posits that the receipe was published much earlier.

I love pecan pie but the savory stuff floats my boat. That's why God hinted to man that it might be a good idea to domesticate cattle about 8000 BC...and invented salt too.


Prime rib with a great rub. Horse radish sauce. There is another example of devine intervention. Horse radish. Imagine the first hunter-gatherer who discovered horse radish.


"Ayala, this taste like ****! Go find dung beetles or something good"

And the savory rub is mainly for the end pieces. Then you get to the inside peices. Pools of liquified anaimal fat....ahhh...<eyes roll back in head>

That picture wasnt a finished Pav, it gets smothered in cream, strawberries, kiwifruit, chocolate shavings etc etc etc.

I think a Kiwi invented a "meringue cake" which didnt quite make the grade. Then an Aussie Chef tweaked it a bit and presented it in honour of Anna Pavlova, the Russian Ballerina.

When I was in Enzed in September I tried a Pavlova, while nothing wrong with it was nothing like a "pav" as we know it.

My wife also knocked up a "Pav" yesterday, ours will have Cream & Raspberries.

Snails, with garlic, and a slightly sweet white wine (Pouilly Fumé, this year).
And a Melun Brie to wash the taste of garlic with something stronger (and sweet white wine with that too, who wants red with cheese?)

Counter... Here is our Kiwi Pav plated-up, with as you can see with the whipped-cream and fruit added. This is because Mrs Divepac, who by the way is a trained Chef; wants the crust of the Pav to retain it's crunch. So she only adds the accompaniments when serving up, otherwise the beautiful Pav goes soggy - touche.

No, its basically a big meringue.

The good ones (and Divepac's wife looks like an expert) is crispy on the outside and soft in the centre.

The ingredients are basically egg whites and sugar.

Here is the recipe for you Michael -

Mrs DivePac’s Pavlova Recipe.

6 egg whites (approx 200g)
350g of sugar (castor)
1 tablespoon of cornflour
1.5 teaspoons of white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Beat eggs, vinegar and vanilla until thick, then slowly add sugar an cornflour.
Beat until stiff peaks are formed (approx 10 to 15 minutes).
Place on tray with baking paper, then bake in preheated oven at 150C/300F until it is crispy on top (takes approximately 25 minutes in Mrs DivePac’s fan oven).
Serve cold with whipped cream and strawberries/fruit salad, enjoy.

Note: The longer you cook it the crisper it will be, and the less marshmallowy it will be.
