Pavlova!

I see on Nightline that my old lecturer, Helen Leach, has definitively confirmed that the modern Pavlova was first "released" in a New Zealand cookbook in 1929 after the ballerina Pavlova's tour of the Antipodes. Australia apparently didn't pick up the recipe till the 30s. They might have Pharlap's heart in a jar but we retain the dessert. Sweet.
