Mini-Pavlovas

Mini-pavlova copyBeing half-Australian, I have a lot of fond and hazy memories of pavlovas, though most of them are from Denmark. They were these festive and monstrous meringue disks with piles of whipped cream, passion fruit and kiwi-slices on top. (Growing up in the 80s will do that to you either way, though possibly with more mini-umbrellas.) Anyway, they were also one of the things that made my Australian mother exotic back in the days when the cream of Danish youth had yet to go backpacking up and down the East coast of Australia. And when phenomena like Vegemite and smoko were still reserved to our family home and our trips Down Under. I still remember how we huddled around the phone for the Christmas call to my grand parents, each of us trying to strike up meaningful conversation with the minute price of 5 Danish kroner (about 65 cent €) looming over our heads.

Flødeboller part 50.000 (or III, but who’s counting?)

Susceptible to flattery as I am, a recent comment on my old flødebolle-post here made me very happy. And also very hungry for flødeboller. So I decided to talk you through a four-round match of Heidi vs. Flødebollen. Take a ringside seat and keep a towel handy as there might be some chocolate staining ahead:

The Yoghurt of Champions

Bored with my usual porridge and enamoured with making my own semi-dried tomatoes I recently walked down the vegetable aisle at the supermarket unaware that in a matter of moments I would have an epiphany. One that would change, if not my life, then my breakfast menu for ever.

Lavender Meringue

It’s 1am and what a relief it is to write “it’s”! Have just sent off the first seven pages of my methodology chapter to my supervisor and now I can go back to schlopping around with words for a short while. I think that calls for a celebration, don’t you?

Toasted Coconut Marshmallows: Sweets with an Aussie Twist

I love flødeboller, I love chocolate mousse, I looove chocolate macaroons. Basically I just love anything that requires beating egg whites. That’s one of the reasons I can’t get enough of making marshmallows. Another reason is that I have finally figured out why my last couple of batches turned moist and sticky in no time: I left out the 24 hours of air-drying. Silly billy! Now that I know, I just had to make my own version of a brilliant sweet I tried in Tasmania last October: The Toasted Coconut Marshmallow.
