Pavlova, an airy confection named in honor of Russian prima ballerina Anna Pavlova, consists of a meringue base crowned with fruit and capped with whipped cream. Traditionally, the meringue base has a soft, nearly marshmallow-like center, but for this recipe, brought to us by renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, it is crisp and light.

This recipe was originally developed for a restaurant kitchen, which typically includes a convection oven. To prepare this at home, bake the meringues overnight, or until dried, on the bottom rack of a gas oven with only the pilot light on.
