Abstract:

"Australians and New Zealanders have long debated which country invented the pavlova (a large meringue dessert cake said to emulate the lightness of the famous ballerina, Anna Pavlova), but the real story of the ballerina's visit to the two countries and the emergence of three different pavlovas has been neglected." "This book shows the evolution of three pavlova types, that their recipes have never become fixed, and that creative and innovative cooks have played the most important roles in transforming a fashionable afternoon tea cake into an iconic dessert." "The parts played by a gelatine manufacturer, a Dunedin spinster, and numerous other New Zealand housewives are all revealed in this fascinating contribution to food history."--Jacket.
