Festive Pavlova Wreath

Take a peek at any Kiwi dinner table on Christmas Day and you’ll almost always find that iconic, and most Kiwi of desserts – Pavlova. If you haven’t tried Pavlova, you’re in for a real treat – clouds of sweet marshmallow encased in crunchy meringue, topped with lashings of cream and tart fresh fruit. Simple, … Read more

Pistachio & Raspberry Pavlova Roulade

Pistachio & Raspberry Pavlova Roulade

Another Kiwi classic – the Pavlova Roulade, or meringue roll as it’s known in other parts of the world. This was definitely one of those desserts I’d put in the ‘too hard basket’ – the rolling of that delicate meringue just looked too much like a recipe for disaster! However, first time worked a charm … Read more

Rhubarb & Coconut Meringue Tart

Rhubarb & Coconut Meringue Tart

Mention rhubarb and meringue in the same sentence and you just know it’s gonna be good! After all, who doesn’t love the contrast between tart and sweet?! It’s rhubarb season here in New Zealand and I’m making the most of it. You might remember the Rhubarb Creams I made a few weeks ago. This time, … Read more

Lemon Meringue Pie


Sublime.. sublime.. sublime.. Seriously this Lemon Meringue Pie is one of the best desserts I’ve made so far. The melt-in-your-mouth pastry, the sharp tang of lemon cream filling, and the cloud of heavenly meringue all coming together in the dreamiest way. I’ve made mini lemon meringue tarts previously, but used a store-bought pastry and a … Read more

Mini Lemon Meringue Tarts


Recently, I was lucky enough to fly over the ditch to Melbourne for a short break away. While I was there, I sampled Lemon Meringue Pie from the famous Hopetoun Tea Rooms and thought I’d died and gone to heaven! Instead of the standard starchy, firm set lemon custard they used a seductively soft and … Read more

Pavlova Slab with Spiced Poached Pears, Hazelnuts & Chocolate Sauce


Pavlova… we Kiwis can’t get enough of it. But, just occasionally, you want to give it a makeover. Not to say that the classic mounded pavlova is passé at all, but this time around I just felt like a change. Enter Jamie Oliver’s tray-bake pavlova (which is kind of a misnomer, given pavlovas are baked on a tray anyway), with its rustic, … Read more

Cappuccino Pavlova & Cherry Parfait


This Cappuccino Pavlova & Cherry Parfait recipe was devised out of necessity – with all the Pavlovas I make, there’s bound to be the odd failure or two. So, when I made my usual Cappuccino Pavlova on a drizzly, humid day (duh!), it was hardly surprising that it went pear-shaped and a solution was needed … Read more

Eton Mess with Salted Caramel Meringues & Boysenberries


Eton Mess – that classic English combo of meringue, cream and strawberries – is synonymous with summer. So, naturally, I thought what a great way to bring a touch of summer into our winter time. Actually, the idea to have Eton Mess was a bit of an after thought really. I’d been inspired by a … Read more
