This Pavlova is a traditional New Zealand Christmas dessert, and it is also my favourite! It was named in honour of the Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova. And one hotel Chef in 1929 in Wellington, New Zealand who was inspired by the touring ballerina and created a dish with clouds of meringue to mimic her tutu and kiwifruit slices were copying the green roses that were into her costume. I hope you like it!
When I was growing up, Mom always decorated for Christmas with deep royal blue ornaments, silver garland, brass horn ornaments and flocked greenery. So beautiful, Mom! I thought this dessert would be a fitting tribute to her glamorous decor. The recipe for the meringue base for the pavlova is from Sallysbakingaddiction.com.
This was a classic dessert when I was a child. Rumtopf is a big earthenware pot that is filled with all kinds of fruits over the summer. To conserve the fruit they are mixed with sugar and covered with strong rum. Usually it starts with strawberries and ends with apples and pears somewhere late October, early November. Once all the fruit is added, it needs to mature another 4-8 weeks before it can be served. This made it the perfect Christmas dessert and gift.
This year I made one myself and am very curious how it will turn out.
I learned of granizados when I lived in Spain. They are water-based, dairy-free frozen treats with a slush like texture. One of the most traditional granizados is lemon flavored, but when it is hot, a granizado de café is a wonderful way to get your coffein hit and a cool treat at the same time. Classically the liquid is put in the freezer and has to be scraped every thirty minutes. This makes it quite time consuming. But if you own a blender or smoothie maker you can side track this easily and have a treat whenever you like it with minimal prep time!
I was looking for a light dessert for my son's 21st Birthday, BBQ party (Summer, 2020), when I came across a recipe for Strawberry Mojito Sorbet.
For fun, I decided to serve the sorbet as Popsicles. The recipe is easy to make, light and refreshing, especially after all the snacks and BBQ food. Plus, they were a hit!
In hot weather, cool ice creams are refreshments for us. The sweetness combined with the coolness melted in the mouth that makes us feel more refreshed.
Here, the first picture, I have 4 ice- creams with chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and matcha flavor.
