A Pavlova is an Australian meringue, whipped cream and fruit dessert that was named in honor of the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova during one of her tours through Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s. They're an incredible dessert—they look ridiculously beautiful and complex to make but nothing could be simpler. One mouthful and you'll be hooked.
