Aussie icon - the pavlova!
Last weekend my friends P&J had a "thank you party" for their friends who had been there for them through a rough patch. A fairly typical Aussie barbecue otherwise, with sausages and salads and yummy lasagne. The jewel in the crown, and what stood apart for me, was P's pavlova. I had heard that she is known for her pavs but I cannot remember tasting one previously. Yum. Crunchy crust, light and fluffy meringue, lots of cream and fresh fruit!
I was told that each pavlova had twelve egg whites (P made two!) and there were duck eggs somewhere in that equation, the special super ingredient.
P&J, any time that you want to thank someone then I will be there!
