And nothing shows off all of meringue’s best qualities more than pavlovas, named after the iconic ballet dancer, Anna Pavlova. Just like the dancer herself, this tasty dessert is light, delicate and stunningly beautiful. Creating a pavlova is simple — just add whipped cream and fresh fruit to your meringue. So slip on your favorite ballet flats, because these inspiring pavlova recipes will make you want to dance.
