Roasted Strawberry Pavlova

Roasted Strawberry Pavlova

A sumptuous, light dessert! We don’t often think of roasting strawberries but doing so makes for a rich concentration of flavours. The fragrance of vanilla coupled with the freshness of anise makes for a deliciously captivating combination.

This recipe demonstrates the efficient use of a single vanilla bean. To flavour the whipping cream, we use the vanilla caviar (little black grains found inside the bean). We then use the seedless bean when roasting the strawberries in the oven.
