I wanted it to look fun. And I wanted all encompassing flavour. Usually with Pavlova’s I have to carefully construct each bite to ensure a combo of meringue, whipped cream and fruit. By splashing my homemade berry coulis all over the shop, I’ve removed the possibility of a fruitless bite (see what I did there?).
Lightly grilling the peaches creates a lovely look and helps soften the peach wedges slightly, allowing them to smush in with the pudding when you eat it, rather than shoot away unexpectedly when you approach with your spoon (slippery buggers). However, if your peaches are beautifully ripe and you would like them to remain un-grilled then of course, be my guest.
Cooking & prep: 1 1/2 hours
Waiting for pavlova to cool: overnight / a few hours
