Pavlova Pavlova

This dessert is much easier than people think. Make a large one or 8 single portions, it's up to you.

  1. Start by whisking the egg whites to stiff peaks.
  2. Slowly add the caster sugar 1 tbsp at a time.
  3. Then add the white wine vinegar, cornflour and 1 tsp of vanilla paste.
  4. The egg whites should be thick and glossy. Line a baking tray with baking paper, spoon the meringue onto the tray.
  5. It should be the size of a regular dinner plate. Use a spoon to create a dip in the middle.
  6. Bake in the oven at 130℃ for one hour.
  7. After one hour, turn the heat off, but leave the meringue in the oven until it is COMPLETELY cool. This may take up to 3 hours.
  8. Meanwhile, cut half of the strawberries and half of the raspberries into small pieces. Toss with 4 tbsps of icing sugar and a teaspoon of lemon juice.
  9. Whip the cream to medium peaks, then fold through the remaining icing sugar and vanilla paste.
  10. Once the meringue is completely cool, top with the whipped cream, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, chopped pistachio and then finally the sauce.

As a youngster, I hit rock bottom and landed myself in a young offenders. I managed to turn my life around, became the first person to earn a Gold D of E Award behind bars and through this found my passion in cooking. I was taken on by Jamie Oliver, eventually started my own business and now find myself catering for royals and celebs. I use my love for food to spread joy and help others find purpose and change their lives. I mentor youngsters who have been in trouble with the law and regularly go back into prisons to share my experiences. I find myself being in a very fortunate position where I am able to do something I really love AND get paid for it!
