What are you doing for Christmas?



What are you doing for Christmas? Why not shoot a little video on your mobile phone or webcam. Then upload it. It's pretty straight forward, so long as you can get the video off your phone.
I've placed a simple uploader on the right.

I'll have to copy and paste the code before it'll appear here.
Or simply write a comment if you like.

Hey what? Pav? Loving the idea of Pav. Fair makes me salivate, like Pavlov's dog.

Eating Pavlova? For the whole of Christmas? That's a bit much isn't it?

As for me - I'm having turkey (of course), ham glazed with plum jam and cardamon, macaroni salad - with a Grenache Mataro Shiraz. Then some Christstollen with a Botrytis Semillon, and fruit.

Then I think it'll be time for a sleep.

Pavlova is for Aussies, wimps and diva's. I'm eating pannettone and onto my second bottle of Proseco (or maybe I'll open a Moscato instead ?). Cheers amici ...

I had to look up what a Pavlova is. Not common over here. Meringues we know.

The video is good though. Not YouTube? Who is it?

Long live the Pavlova and death to the fruit cake!

It is a little controversial to talk about the origin of the noble Pav. Whether it be invented in New Zealand or in Australia. New Zealand has the earliest printed recipe - from a 1929 rural magazine.
But a Pavlova is a meringue with cream and fruit. Here, again, there's some contention with the origin of meringue.
There are records of Lady Fettiplace making "white biskit bread" and Lady Fane making what she called "pets" with egg white and sugar in the early 1600s.
There's another claim that it was first made by an Italian chef named Gasparini in the Swiss town of Meiringen.
