On a Whim Wm's world travels

Last week, our flatmate (housemate) Robin made for us what seems to be the national dessert of New Zealand — a Pavlova. As you can see from the photo below, it looks something like a large merengue, but it is actually quite thick and creamy inside, more like a fluffy cheesecake. After you bake it and it cools, you top it with whipped cream and fruit. We used raspberries and blueberries, but people often use kiwifruit (naturally). Very very yummy. This was the first time we tried one, so we don’t know how it compares to those served in restaurants. But for now, we can truthfully say that Robin made the best pavlova we have ever tasted! Hopefully Cindy can learn to make them.

  1. Hi Wm and Cindy!! Did you get my e-mail a few weeks ago that told you the story of my mom, Wilma, and my daughter, Robin, and I meeting and DANCING with Jacob??? We had a great time with him…both at Suttle Lake Dance Camp and at Folklife a few years later. Nice to see his picture….please tell him hi from me. Love reading your blog! Thanks for all the information and entertainment. Judy Hundis
