Pavlova is named for Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. Whether Australia or New Zealand created the dessert is a source of debate, but the dessert is an important part of the cuisine of both countries.

We suppose you could cut it into wedges, but we went with the “gather round with a spoon” approach!
