    What a beautiful dessert and it is on my to-do list well…has been for a long time! :) The Aussie blogger friends are just the best aren’t they!

    You are too cute jumping slap bang into the middle of the old pavlova contest between Aussies & Kiwis. It was definitely the Aussies who came up with it first.

    Gorgeous photos and I think your raspberry poached pears are inspired!

    Dear lord, this looks so good it should be illegal… another winner Nazneen – you’re really on fire at the moment! What was that thing you made the other day? I’ll have to go back and look (drool) again. I only ever had a strawberry or raspberry pavlova before, and this actually reminds me that I haven’t actually had a pavlova at all in… well, years. Not since my teens I don’t think.

    The poached pears look rich and luscious on top – definitely a combination I’m going to have to remember – thanks so much for sharing!

    You have done all Aussies proud, Nazneen with your stunning pavlova and thank you so much for your very kind words. I too consider you a great friend and yes, we have so much in common even if I’m sleeping while you’re driving your kids to all their activities or you’re landscape is covered in snow while ours is burning up under a harsh sun. I love pavlova and yes, it’s my go-to dessert when I have leftover egg whites! Amazing how you can make something of such proportions from just a few egg whites. Your poached pears are a lovely decoration xx

      Thank you Charlie! I’m glad you liked my pavlova and an happy most of my Aussie friends gave me a seal of approval. Goes to show that we may live worlds apart but we’re not that different xx

    Isn’t it great all the wonderful people you meet through blogging. I know my non blogging friends look at me a little sadly when I mention any of you but I’m the one feeling sorry for them that they don’t get to share wonderful experiences and fabulous food. Love your Pavlova, wonderful colour fruit and I bet it tastes georgous!

    Thanks for having me on your blog roll, it’s really time I updated mine. You’ve been there from the beginning of course. GG xx

      I know what you mean GG. First they get suspicious and warn you of the dangers of the web! If you don’t blog or don’t read blogs, then you don’t understand the bond. You were the first one up on my blog roll too my dear friend. Xxx

    I love all of our Auzzie mates too! I did not know that pavlova is an Australian dessert. Great to know and love your version with those beautiful poached pears. Just gorgeous! Have a super weekend. BAM

      Thank you Bam!

  7. Oh Nazneen! How gorgeous are these pears atop that pillowy white cloud of goodness! I just love pavlovas. So simple and elegant at the same time! Thanks for introducing us to your Australian friends! The only one I know is cute little Uru…but I will be sure to check out everyone’s sites! This dessert is absolutely stunning!

    Pavlova is complicated; but you made it so effortlessly easy and beautiful :) How lovely the raspberry soaked pears look sitting atop snow-white Pavlova :) Adorable, pillowy, cuddly Pavlova :)

    What a sweet tribute to your Australian friends ! I wanna be an Australian now :D

    Oh this looks scrumptious. just waiting to be eaten. Never tried my hands at pavlova. But the pics are tempting me try soon.

  10. I have seen some beautiful pavlovas from our wonderful Aussie friends but never with such a beautiful color. I agree totally with you about the wonderful friendships that are made through our blogging. We have developed a diverse and wonderful family through our blog world and I am happy that you and others are part of it. :)

    I, too, have never been to Australia, and would love to go – in part just to meet all of the amazing bloggers from there and New Zealand! I make meringues all the time, but rarely a pavlova. Gotta do it someday. Great tribute!

    OMG! This is so pretty…I never made pavlova and it is on my list of “to do” for ages…now seeing yours with poached pears…I must try it!
    Thanks for the recipe…it is sure a true inspiration for me.
    Enjoy your week Nazneen :D

    Thats one of my favorite parts about blogging, you meet people from all over the world that life would never connect you with otherwise. The pavlova is absolutely gorgeous, the fruit on top looks complete luscious! I’ve never had one before. How about you come to London and make me one :)?

    Nazneen, you truly have managed one of the prettiest pavlovas I have seen . . . and, since I too am Australian, I have seen a few :) ! I love the shape you have managed ~ it SO looks like the real thing and I shall make note of the topping and try to make it myself. Am not a sweets/baking gal but the pav is iconic and just has to be on the menu!! And come Down Under soon: there is much more here than the Opera House and the Barrier Reef!!!

  15. I only learned about pavlova after I saw a few recipes on food blogs. I haven’t had this dessert in my life (not a very common dessert option, maybe that’s why?). It looks so pretty and I love your poached raspberry on top!

  16. I agree how lucky we are to meet wonderful people through blogging, that’s the best thing. Probably one of the things I never thought of before blogging but now I believe that it’s one of the most valued part of blogging.
    So nice to be introduced to so many blogs. thanks.
    Hope you get to Australia soon and I enjoy Pavlova and your looks really good.
    Have a great week.

    I love this idea; a giant meringue, topped with fruit! The red was a nice touch, too! and a big thanks for adding me to your blogroll :)

      Thank you, thank you! These bloggers are wonderful ladies and I am honoured to call them friends.

  18. You’re too funny Nazneen, Neighbours? Really?!! Hahaha. I have to admit, I’m well travelled. I get the travel bug and get itchy feet to leave but then every time we land back in Sydney I wonder why we left in the first place. I’m so lucky to live in this gorgeous part of the world.
    Your Pav looks really really REALLY good!
    And by the way, it’s totally an Aussie thing, definitely not Kiwi (we’re very insistent on this matter) ;)

      I know Lisa. I loved Neighbours, what with Jason Donovan AND Guy Pearce? There were many reasons to love it!I too have been very fortunate to travel but all at a young age. Lately, its just about children and home. My feet have been itching for years. Oh well, once all the kids are out of the house I guess!!

    Oh lovely, you are just too kind :) I am absolutely with you too, while you are definitely the most special, the blogging community is just awesome – I never realised how much I would love ‘meeting’ new people and just how genuinely nice everyone would be. Your pav looks delicious – It’s one of my favourite desserts, I adore the texture! And I’ll forgive you for giving those pesky New Zealanders part credit for coming up with something so fabulous, it’s a hotly contested matter (almost as fiercely contested as ‘who invented the lamington’!!).
    You make sure you keep me posted if you make those plans to come to Oz :) Likewise, I’ll let you know if we come over to the States and Colorado – one of our best friends has just moved to Boulder to study!

      What can I say? I had to cover my ass incase the Kiwis read this post!! Oh you simply must come and visit if you have another reason besides me to visit CO :) I am down the road from Boulder and you can give your friend my contact info incase they want proper Brit/Aussie food :) Well, with that info, I am definitely expecting to see you very soon ;) xx

    You are such a doll Nazneen! Thank you for the lovely words..blog hugs! I can say with absolute certainity that the best thing that has happened to me since blogging are meeting wonderful people like yourself. I can’t wait to make a trip to Denver..my brother is actually jealous ever since I told him. I would be happy to extend the same invitation to you. How about a trip down under! The pavlova is one of the best I have ever seen. It is so unique…unlike the ones we see around. Looks like a treat fit for a king. And raspberries…need I say more!
