Pavlova is one of our favorite desserts. It’s beautiful and good, but also quite easy to make. That’s why we asked Silvia to make one for us in combination with Pinot Grigio from the new Torri Cantine 1967 selection.
A marvel for the eyes and for the taste!
Serves 8-10 people.
Preparation: 40 min.
Cooking: 120 min.
- For the meringue
- 160 gr egg whites
- 330 gr extra-fine caster sugar
- 30 gr cornstarch
- 4 gr cream of tartar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 250 ml fresh cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 300 gr cherries
Whip the egg whites with a planetary mixer or electric whips, at medium speed.
As soon as they begin to swell and become white, add the sugar in three separate batches, continuing to whisk for a couple of minutes between each addition.
When the egg whites are puffy, add the cornstarch sifted together with the cream of tartar, continue to whisk for 2-3 minutes.
Now add the lemon juice and whip for another 2 minutes to make a glossy, firm meringue.
With the help of a cake pan, draw a disk of 20 cm in diameter on a sheet of baking paper, place the meringue in the center, create a central cavity and smooth the edges, bringing the meringue upward with the help of a spoon to create jagged edges.
Bake in a preheated static oven at 120° for about 2 hours, until dry and let the Pavlova cool in the oven with the door half open.
In a cold bowl, whip the cream with electric whips and incorporate the vanilla extract.
Stone the cherries and fill the meringue cavity with half, spread the whipped cream on top and decorate with the remaining cherries.
We have decided to pair it with a white wine from the new 1967 selection, a Pinot Grigio born in Terre di Chieti from a vine cultivated with the Guyot system, in one of the most important wine areas, characterized by an invaluable temperature range and a magnificent exposure.
A magnificent pinot grigio obtained from a harvesting in the third decade of august, hand-picked grapes only, which guarantees the utmost respect for the surrounding environment.
