Learn how to make a Pavlova; For those of you Pavlova virgins, let me explain. A Pavlova is a traditional meringue-based New Zealand dessert (the Aussies will claim otherwise) named after a Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova, as a tribute to her touring the country in the 1920s. It is a light fluffy meringue loaded with heavy whipped cream (yes we Kiwis have an affinity towards dairy), covered in kiwi fruit, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, even mango at times, and excessively inhaled at rapid speed. In this class, you will learn how to make the perfect summer dessert, refine the art of whipping a meringue, and learn some NZ culinary history along the way. You will also receive a copy of the prized Ellison family full-proof Pavlova recipe so you can share this experience with friends & family for years to come! Light snack and tea/sparkling water provided. Feel free to bring your beverage of choice.

June 4 - 2-4 PM

Location: Downtown Austin- Address will be mailed 48 hours before class.

About Wesley Ellison: !  was raised mostly in Northern California, on butter. My formative years were spent enjoying my mother’s approach to cooking—butter, bulk, simple. Cooking principals that are, as far as I know, revered by all women in charge of feeding four large big-boned children. I also enjoyed a few childhood years spent in my father’s birthplace, Christchurch, New Zealand. This is where my loyalty to homespun, farm-to-table fresh ingredients comes from, I think. Also thanks to the Kiwis and my father: a passion for sugar, dairy and total reckless indulgence. In 32 years, I’ve also been lucky enough to live in Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Ann Arbor, Charlottesville, and now Austin, Texas! The passion stringing these temporary homes (and my life) together, the only substance that keeps me who I am wherever I am: food. Day to day, I wear my Assistant Athletics Director hat for Texas Athletics - as a lifelong athlete, food has always been multi-purposed! You can check out my website here!
