Pavlova

Few desserts are as pretty and as easy to make as a pavlova. For this one, we've combined the best elements of versions by Robyn Hedges and Pip Hoar, respectively, two New Zealand bakers featured in Dave Lieberman's homage to the dessert, "Light Fantastic" (August/September 2009). The key to a successful pavlova is patience: allow the meringue to cool completely before transferring it to the plate or cake stand. You'll prevent any crumbling that can occur when the process is rushed. Get the recipe for Pavlova »Dave Lieberman
