About the Dish:
Pavlova is a classic dessert that originated in Australia and New Zealand. It consists of a crisp meringue shell with a soft, marshmallow-like center, topped with whipped cream and fresh fruits. The meringue is sweet and crunchy, while the cream adds richness and the fruits provide a refreshing contrast. Pavlova is a popular dessert for special occasions and is often served during holidays or parties. Its delicate and elegant appearance makes it a favorite among dessert lovers.

- Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Step 2: In a clean, dry bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the caster sugar while continuing to beat until the mixture becomes thick and glossy. Gently fold in the cornstarch and vinegar.
- Step 3: Spoon the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, shaping it into a round mound. Use the back of a spoon to create a well in the center of the mound.
- Step 4: Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 150°C (300°F) and bake for another 50 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the pavlova inside to cool completely.
- Step 5: Once the pavlova is cooled, carefully transfer it to a serving plate. Fill the well in the center with whipped cream and top with fresh fruits.
- Step 6: Serve immediately and enjoy!
