Is the Pavlova Australian or New Zealand?
The Pavlova appears to be named so due to a famous Russian ballet dancer called Anna Pavlova that visited both Australia and New Zealand. The dessert is believed to have been created in her honour. The creation of this dessert has been an argument between Australia and New Zealand ever since. It is usually served during celebrations and holidays.
Australians usually eat this dessert on Australia Day which falls on January 26th.
