RECIPE Sweet Things

Cookies, Ice Cream & Herbs

Pavlovas are a super simple and make one of the most versatile desserts there is. It’s sort of a marshmallow and sort of a merengue cookie and usually topped off with whipped cream and fruit. Summer versions are quite spectacular, filled with berries and stone fruit and dripping with succulent in season nectars. We see fewer autumnal versions and I truth be told I kind of only accidentally came up with this idea, while embarking on the recipe/idea for Goblin Blood Punch and Ghost Toppers. I had some extra merengue from testing and some extra spice so the idea was born to not only spice the pavlovas, as I knew that would taste great, but to flavor mango curd with the spices and see if I could tame mango’s bright and sunny, summery essence and make it quieter and more introspective than it’s used to.
