Thanks for coming back 😀 We’ve been traveling happily along my holiday itinerary and when last you were here, I was still in Australia. But now, this particular post, is a wee bit of a conundrum. Why? Because Aussies claim this desert as their own and New Zealander’s beg to differ !
Who really invented Pavlova?
I say, it would depend on who’s serving desert and it’s always polite to flatter your host or hostess, as it may be 😀
This spoilt gal got to enjoy Pavlova in both countries. First in Australia’s beautiful Blue Mountains at the wonderfully located Boiler House restaurant.
First the views.
Then wine and desert !
Looks pretty right? I totally enjoyed the fruit, drizzle and custard. But the base is a very hard shell of meringue and I never did figure it out. Maybe you’re not really suppose to eat it? I pictured it flying off my plate if I attempted to put a fork into it with any force. Inexplicably, these crazy meal-time
antics horrors calamities sometimes happen to me. BTW, how many drinks have you spilt while dining with friends?
Our charming hostesses, Pauline and her girls, treated us to so many fantastic adventures including a week in Wanaka, New Zealand’s adventure capital (future posts). But it all began with a beautiful evening at Pauline’s home. After a really scrumptious meal, along came THE famous Pavlova !
Que the oohhh’s and aawwee’s
Is it possible that desert can taste better when served with love and a smile?
How cute is this hip chick?
Needless to say, it was perfect in every way. The desert, the company and the entire evening is a delicious memory. Since I have friends in both countries, I’ll refrain from weighing in on the age-old debate, “who made Pavlova first?” But I will say, desert is best when shared with those you love.
PS. Of course I scrapbook’d the event 😀 You can check it out here .
