Checked off the to-do list, had a guts-full

IMG_0705-1The gastronomic tour of New Zealand started with a gourmet hamburger (with roquefort cheese, more about this later) and fish and chips for dinner. All very nice. Even if the spirit is willing, the flesh was weak, as my lower intestine had told me later on.

Today’s Kiwi-fare was Pavlova. Since it’s inception in the 1920’s, it’s been embroiled in a trans-Tasman brawl over who thought it up first. But as the picture atests, it’s a dessert made with egg white and sugar, topped off with fresh cream and fruit. It tasted delicious. I even ate all of the cream too.

Further reading into it’s history and making can be found here¬†and here.
